About the Teacher

  

     Hi there 5th grade families.  I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade at New Market Elementary.  This is my third year teaching 5th grade at New Market.  Prior to that I was a 2nd grade teacher at New Market.  At the beginning of my teaching career, I taught first grade in Baltimore City public schools. 
      I am the mother of 5 children.  I have an 12th grade daughter (Emma), an 9th grade son (Graeson), a 7th grade son (Quinn), a 3rd grade son (Calvin), and a 4 year old son (Xander).  All of my school aged children have attended or currently attend New Market Elementary school.  When I was able to get a teaching job at this school, it was a dream come true. 
      I have my Bachelor's of Arts Degree In Elementary Education from Towson University with certification in both Elementary and Early childhood education.  I am currently working on my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Math and Science, as well as a STEM certificate from Hood College.  I enjoy taking classes and am always trying to stay current on the latest and greatest in teaching.
  I especially enjoy teaching Math, Science, and Writing.  It is my hope that students will gain a love for math and science and leave my classroom feeling confident.  Making mistakes and taking chances are highly encouraged in my class.  I'm looking forward to a wonderful year full of  exploring, learning, and collaborating as we get excited about all that there is to learn in 5th grade.
