Grade 4 teacher
I grew up in Auburn. I have two brothers and one sister. One brother lives in Florida and my other brother and sister live in Lewiston.
I graduated from the University of Maine at Farmington and I received a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. After teaching for a few years, I decided to work on my Masters Degree. I received a Masters Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Maine at Orono.
I started teaching at Williams School, where I did my student teaching. I was sad when the old school was torn down. I moved to Hussey School until the newest Farrington Elementary School was built then I transferred to the new school. I love teaching because it is a very rewarding experience.
I enjoy reading books of many genres; one of my favorite authors is Dick King-Smith. I also enjoy reading his books to students; watching students' reactions to read aloud books is always fascinating. I will start this year by reading Ace because it is hilarious.
I work with students who enjoy writing in several writing clubs. The students give up their recess time to join these clubs which meet once a month. I also work with students in the K Club which meets after school hours.
