I want to express my excitement about working with your child(ren) and family. I have been a 5th Grade teacher at Field for the last 21 years. I have served in building and district-level leadership positions and am ready to begin this new opportunity. I am committed to working in partnership with our students, staff, and families. It is my belief that the work of educating students requires consistent collaboration, communication, learning, and reflecting. This belief lends itself to the goals I have for the school year:
1. To create a school environment where staff works cohesively to promote student learning and growth.
2. To build trust as we work together to achieve school-wide goals and milestones.
3. To promote staff collaboration and to ensure teachers are responsive to data.
I am incredibly excited about my first year in my new position at Field-Stevenson and know it will be filled with opportunities for all of our students, staff, and myself to learn and grow, as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have been before!
Our priority is to support our students and families as we transition back to a full day of in-person learning full of rigor and fun. I can’t wait to have ALL of our Sharks back in the building supporting one another. I pledge to our students, parents and staff that this will be a wonderful year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms. The staff is committed to meeting the academic and social-emotional needs of all of our students by providing the best educational programs through challenging instruction, interventions and extra-curricular activities and incentives.
My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!
