Welcome to Second Grade! I have been teaching in Saint Paul Schools for over 20 years and am happy to be a part of the Horace Mann family, especially as it is my neighborhood school as well.
My goal for students is that they continue to be curious learners and develop healthy social and emotional skills to be kind and caring students. My goal for families is that we communicate and partner well together to support the success of each child.
In my graduate work, I have focused on early literacy instruction and have a passion for teaching reading in a developmentally appropriate manner. Additionally, I have focused my own professional learning around Social and Emotional Learning, family partnerships (including the Parent Teacher Home Visit Project and Academic Teacher Teams), Restorative Practices and inclusive teaching.
Email is the easiest way to get ahold of me. Obviously, I do not check email during instruction or active supervision of students. I typically check my email before the start of the school day and during my planning period at 10:25. If you need to get ahold of more urgently, please call the Horace Mann office.
