If you think my hands are full...
You should see my heart.
Together we will learn new ideas in Science by exploring the world around us. We will use an investigative approach to spark our curiosity as we discover--hands on!

My husband, Pete, and I are the proud parents of two boys; Drew and Carson. I have a BS in Elementary Education and a M. Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction.

Teach so that when children think of
laughter, joy, and learning...
They think of you.
