Welcome to 5th grade. The 2022-2023 school year will be my 12th year teaching! I have experience teaching 2nd grade at Fort Carson, Colorado, 4th grade at Billingsley School and 5th grade at DPES. I received my BA in Elementary Education from the University of Montana (Go Griz!) and relocated to Alabama in 2013. Outside of school, I served the citizens of Alabama as a Public Affairs and Aviation Officer in the Alabama Army National Guard, retiring with over 20 years of service. I am all too familiar with the unique challenges presented to an active military community. It is my pleasure to teach your child and help them reach their fullest potential. If you haven’t already, sign up for Class Dojo. It will automatically send you an email or text message with important school information. Lastly, I can’t stress the importance of positive communication. Please feel free to contact me anytime with any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you for allowing me to share in your child’s educational experience!
