Hello, Franklin Families! I am so excited for my 5th year at Franklin Elementary. I have been teaching for the past 11 years. As a child, I wanted to be a teacher or an actress. As a teacher, I feel like I have the best of both worlds. I get to embrace an audience of students every day, and they leave with more knowledge and understanding than when they walked in with.
I have taught all grade levels K-5. I love all of them for different reasons. This year I will be the enrichment teacher! I am so excited about this! I can't wait to see how these students work together and help each other out to be successful every day. We will have a year full of many fun projects that teach us all the wonderful things we need to know to continue in education. As a teacher, my goal is to get all students to love to learn. We all know the journey through education can be difficult at times. I hope to get my students so excited about what they are learning that they will embrace the challenge, and they will overcome it with more knowledge then they had before.
When I am not at school, I am always spending time with my amazing family. I am married to my best friend(Kevin), and we have one beautiful daughter(Mackenzie). We count ourselves lucky to have been blessed with so many wonderful blessings in our lives. When we are not working, you can find my family at campgrounds around California. We love to be outside and enjoying our beautiful state.
This year will be a great year! I can't wait to learn from your students! We are a team this year. I want to work together to give your student a year that they will remember forever!
