Hello and welcome to third grade! I am excited to have the opportunity to teach your child this school year. This will be my 11th year teaching and third year here at Sanford Creek. I graduated in 2004 with a degree in Elementary Education and in 2009 with a Master's degree in Language and Literacy from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Go Seahawks!
My husband and I have two girls, Olivia and Addison, and a lab-mix rescue named Ellie. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my family. I also love football and cheering for the New York Giants!
Third grade is a very exciting year where students build on concepts they’ve learned and begin to investigate and apply new skills. There is a shift from “learning to read” to “reading to learn.” Yes, it is the beginning of testing (EOG-End of Grade) which may frighten some and be exciting to others. We will work all year preparing them for them for this new learning experience.
I am looking forward to a great year with your child! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you should have any questions or concerns. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
