Welcome, I am thrilled to begin another year teaching 5th grade at Olive Drive Elementary. This is my eighteenth year teaching and there is no other profession that I would rather be in. I have taught third grade, fifth grade, sixth grade, and even a ninth grade section. I have been married seventeen years to a high school biology teacher and together we have two daughters, Dalani (23 years old) and Siena (10 years old). I look forward to getting to know you better. It is going to be a wonderful year!
