This is my first year teaching at Porters Point School. I taught second grade in Burlington last year. Growing up I lived in California, Texas, Hawaii, and Colorado. I moved to Vermont five years ago when I started school at Saint Michael's College. I fell in love and am happy to call Vermont my new home! In my free time I love cozying up with a cup of tea and a good book. I love to sing and have been singing in various choirs my whole life.
I am thrilled to be a part of the first grade team at PPS! As a teacher I know that education is more than what students know, but about what they do, and who they become. It is about how what they learn helps them to become better citizens. In my classroom I aim to instill motivation for continuous learning, inclusion for all, and empathy—all important characteristics both inside and out of the classroom.
