Wecome to our school website and my first grade page! This site is designed to keep you informed on school happenings and specifics to our classroom. Enjoy!


Since graduating college, I've taught at three different schools all in New Hampshire, beginning with Danbury Elementary, followed by Dunbarton Elementary and finally Centre School. I taught first grade at all three schools and began teaching kindergarten when Centre School shifted to an All Day Kindergarten model. I made another career switch last year, switching back to teaching first grade once again! 

I live on the seacoast with my husband and two young children. We enjoy all the seasons living here on the seacoast (even the very snow filled winters!) and our "family fun time" includes going for hikes, bike riding, surfing, snow boarding and cross country skiing. As you can tell, we love to play outside! The students in my class get to know my family well, as I'm always bringing in silly stories about our at-home adventures. 

I absolutely love teaching young elementary children! Children are sponges at this young age...they come to school everyday eager and excited to learn so many new things. I come to school equally excited everyday, watching the students grow into confident and capable learners.
