Welcome to a new school year! I am thrilled to be a member of the kindergarten team at Glenridge. I am excited to be rejoining the School District of Clayton, having taught fourth grade at Meramec from 1992-1995. I have had the opportunity to be a second grade classroom teacher, a four year old preschool assistant, a teacher assistant in the Parkway School District and a literacy intern at Glenridge during my teaching career.
I live in the Ballwin area with my husband Dave and my three children, David, Daniel and Molly. David is a recent graduate from the University of Missouri and has returned to school at UMSL to pursue an engineering degree, Daniel is a senior at Illinios College studying secondary education and Molly is a sophomore at St. Louis Community College in the dental hygiene program. I am also returining to school to explore coursework in the Diverse Learners program at Fontbonne University. In my free time, I enjoy reading, especially mystery books and thrillers. I also enjoy crossword puzzles and sudoku puzzles.
We highly value communication in kindergarten, so please feel free to contact me at any time. I will be sending communication home on a weekly basis. There are also many volunteer opportunities in our classroom and within the school. We want you to feel at home here.
I am looking forward to beginning our kindergarten journey. Thank you for sharing your amazing children with me! It is going to be a wonderful year:)
