    Welcome to first grade!  After attending college at Eastern Washington University, I started my teaching career in Hoquiam, Washington.  I taught title I Reading and Math for one year at Lincoln Elementary before settling in to first grade for the next seven years at Emerson Elementary.  It was during this time that I went to school on the weekends and earned my Master's in Education from the University of Portland.  In 2001, I was hired by the South Bend School District and taught a first/second grade split for three years.  After three years, there was no more need for a split class so I returned to a straight first grade classroom and have been teaching a regular first grade class ever since.  Currently I am in my 21st year of teaching!  My favorite things are reading, writing, gardening, traveling and spending time with my family and friends.
