Hello and welcome to another exciting school year. This is my 22nd year here in the Menomonee Falls District and I am looking forward to working with all of you.
I received my B.S. from Concordia University. I also received my Master's Degree from Mt. Mary College in 2003.
CLASSES I TEACH
I am beginning my 6th year teaching 2nd grade at Riverside. I come to Riverside having taught 13 years at Valley View teaching 3rd grade and 4 years teaching 4th grade at Ben Franklin.
Every day we work on reading, writing, and math.
For reading, students read with partners, independently, with small groups and with the teacher. We read for an hour a day, plus it is very important that students read for homework daily. For writing, we use a workshop approach. Students write about topics of their choosing and the teachers conference with them as they work, working on strategies to improve their writing. For math, we use Bridges. We work on many different types of problems through out the year. Second graders are very busy learning and having fun all day!
Email is the easiest way to contact me. Please keep in mind that I only check my email once a day. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need to reach me by phone, the school phone number is 262-255-8484 and my voicemail extension is 2348. If you leave a message I will return your call as soon as possible.
*Please note--for mid-day transportation changes, please do not leave voice messages or emails. Let the office know of the change and they will let us know.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email.
I received the Superintendent's Child Advocacy Award in June 2007.
