I am pleased to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to my class. A good learning experience is built on a cooperative effort among parent, child, and teacher. I look forward to the work and growth we will accomplish this year together.
I graduated from the University of Kentucky, where I received my degree in Elementary Education. I obtained my masters in library science at Eastern Kentucky University. After graduating from UK, I was eager to come back home to Somerset and work at Hopkins, where I attended elementary school many years ago. This will be my thirteenth year teaching and I feel blessed to have a job that I am so passionate about!
My husband Blair and I were married in Pawleys Island, South Carolina in June 2014. We have a son, Brooks, who is four years old, and our daughter Caroline is three. They have the sweetest little personalities and bring us so much joy! I am so proud that both of them are little Briar Jumpers at Hopkins Elementary! In the fall, we will be welcoming another daughter to our family.
I aspire for all of my students to experience success and achieve the goals we set together. I believe that with the proper tools, each child is capable of exceeding expectations, and as a teacher it will be my job to ensure they reach their potential. My success as a teacher will only be met through my students’ accomplishments.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. My classroom door is always open and I encourage interaction and contact with each parent. I look forward to a productive and enjoyable school year for your child! Welcome to 4th grade!
