Welcome to my classroom!
It is great to meet you. I will tell you a little about myself.
I grew up in Ellsworth, went through the Ellsworth School system and graduated in 1985.  That same year, I entered college at the University of Maine at Machias and competed my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education in 1989. Many years later, I received my Masters M.Ed, at the University of Maine at Orono in 2012. 
I have many years teaching experience as a Grade 3 and Grade 4 teacher, Kindergarten teacher and teacher at Small World Nursery School, DownEast Family YMCA and HarborHouse..26 years total!
My home has been Ellsworth, I know this wonderful community well. I am on several committees and professional organizations including Board of Directors for Ellsworth High School Alumni Association and professional teacher's association, Delta Kappa Gamma.Since 2013, I have been involved in the Maine Elementary Science Partnership As a member, I participated in the Curriculum Evaluation Task Force. As a teacher leader, I am facilitating meeting using Talk Science and implementing Stem Scope Science curriculum. I have served on the Educational Advisory Committee for the Abbe Museum.  I have given several presentations statewide, promoting Wabanaki History and Culture for Maine Educators.
I look forward to working with you and your family.
