Hello! I am excited to be back at Hamline teaching first grade. I have been teaching in St. Paul since 1999. Most of those years I have taught first grade. First graders are the best. Their excitement for learning is contagious.
At home I have a middle school girl and a middle school boy. I do not know how that is possible since they were both in first grade about four days ago!! I am married and we live in Shoreview. I like reading, walking and trying to garden.
Our family has rescued a black cat with half a tail named Clarabelle. We also rescued a mischievous orange tabby named Vivian. They can both open doors and cabinets. I am sure your children will hear many stories of the adventures of Clarabelle and Vivian this year.
My son helped me produce the attached video. He loves special effects. I love his ability to use technology!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
