Welcome, I am thrilled to begin another year teaching 5th grade at Olive Drive Elementary. This is my seventeenth year teaching and I am still as passionate about it as my first year. I have taught third grade, fifth grade, sixth grade, and even a ninth grade section. I have been married sixteen years to a high school biology teacher and together we have two daughters, Dalani (22 years old) and Siena (9 years old). I look forward to getting to know you better. Even though things may be different this year, it is going to be a wonderful year!
