Hello, fifth grade families! I am so excited to be your scholar's teacher for the 2021-2022 school year. This is my 1st year at Stukey but I have been teaching 3rd grade for the past 15 years. I have a bachelor's degree in science and a master's degree in literacy. I moved here from Michigan 15 years ago with my husband. I have a 4 year old daughter, Amelia, and two dogs: Baxter and Luke. When I am not in the classroom, I love to go running. So if you see me running around town make sure you honk. My biggest passion in my life is books. I love discovering new books, talking about books, and introducing my favorite books to my students. In our classroom, we will work together to foster an environment of collaboration, acceptance, and growth so everyone can be successful. I look forward to working with you throughout the year. Go Stingers!
