Welcome to my Kindergarten classroom! This is my 10th year teaching full day Kindergarten in Ellsworth. Prior to this, I taught two 1/2 day sessions of Kindergarten for 11 years, also in Ellsworth.
Educationally, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Maine at Orono. I am certified in Elementary Education, and I earned my Masters of Science in Elementary Education from the University of New England.
I am a mentor teacher for new teachers at Ellsworth Elementary Middle School. A lifelong learner, I seek opportunities for professional development through conferences, workshops, and educational literature.
As a Kindergarten teacher, I use Responsive Classroom practices, developing a community of learners who care about each other. In this positive environment, I strive to help students do their best socially and academically!
