Degrees and Certifications:
Hi everyone! I am so excited to join the SSGP community and am looking forward to a wonder- full school year. This will be my 22nd year as a public elementary school teacher, and I am grateful for the opportunity to teach children how to become lifelong readers and learners. I was blessed with a national Teacher of the Year award from NCMEC in 2006, and a campus Teacher of the Year award during the 2020-2021 COVID school year. I am also a Dog Dad to a 9 year old female Corgi mix named Bailey. Once again, I am eager to share my passion for reading, writing and social studies with my new group of students this year!
