I have been teaching first grade at Marion Elementary for 23 years. I love teaching first grade and always enjoy when former students come back to me and tell me they remember me and thank me for teaching them how to read. When students enter my classroom I want them to feel loved and respected. I also want them to be happy about being here. When they leave my classroom , I want them to feel the same way. I also want them to leave with a sense of pride knowing that they have grown by leaps and bounds and that they did the best they could.
I have gotten to know a lot of families in all of my years at Marion Elementary and have formed bonds with many. Marion Elementary has been my home for a long time and I'm proud to be a Bulldog!
