Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education Madonna University/University of Michigan Masters Degree in Guidance & Counseling for Elementary Students & Educational Leadership Eastern Michigan University Certified Reading Recovery Teacher Western Michigan University Certified ESOL Specialist University of Michigan

Although this is my first year at HHIECC, I am not new to the teaching field.  I have been teaching for over 25 years.  20 years in Michigan where I was born and raised (Go Blue!!), 2 years at Hilton Head Elementary School For the Creative Arts and 5 years at Cross Schools in Bluffton.  I have taught grades Kindergarten – 3rd grade, was a literacy specialist for 10 years and an ESL (English as a Second Language) specialist for 10 years.  However, Kindergarten is (by far) my favorite grade to teach!

This year will be an exciting and instrumental experience for your kindergartner! Throughout the school year we will learn the basic building blocks of reading, numbers and other mathematical concepts,  learn to write in writers workshop, life cycles of plants and animals, states of matter, weather, how to behave in a school setting, and much, much more! This year you will be amazed and proud of the rapid progress your child will make.

In order for this year to be a success, I ask for your help and support at home. You (the parent), are your child’s first and most important teacher.  In school, I will prepare an organized and structured environment but we will need to work together as a team to best promote your child’s academic growth.
