Welcome! The second grade is going to be full of new and exciting experiences for your child. I am looking forward to watching them grow and excel throughout the school year. I have been teaching at Paterson School for well over 15 years. I have taught kindergarten, first, and second grades at Paterson School. I love my second graders; but I also enjoy teaching all grade levels during Summer School and on Adventure Fridays. It is fun for me to spend time in the classroom with my former students and to have the opportunity to witness how much they all have grown and changed. In addition to teaching, I am in charge of administering and tracking all of the bilingual testing for those students who are lucky enough to speak more than one language. My favorite subjects to teach are science and art. When I am not teaching I love traveling, camping, hiking, gardening, canning, watching sports and spending time with my family, friends and of course my dog (Gator). Thank you for trusting me with your child. Please know that I will help them to be the best version of themselves that they can be and I will love them for years to come!
