About me

Need bio.


I am back teaching 1st grade!  This year I have a smaller class which is wonderful.  Room 220 also has 2 sets of windows so it is very bright and cheerful.  I have 2 daughters Quinn and Keiran, ages 15 and 12.  Quinn has already met the class! This is my 24th year teaching, 19 years as a Librarian and 5th year as a 1st Grade Teacher.  I’m looking forward to a great year!

Hello Room 220 Families!

Summer is coming to an end, but I am excited to get the school year started! We are going to have a great year together! Please refer to South Loop’s website for the supply list to set your child up for success this school year.Here are a few ideas to help get your child get ready for the first days of school:

  • Help your child get back on a school schedule so they will be well rested and have a great start to the year! First graders do not nap  but we sure do have a lot of fun learning!
  • Talk with your child about some learning goals for first grade. What do they want to learn? What do they hope first grade will be like?
  • Ask your child to think of something exciting from the summer to share with the class. Did you take any trips? Who did you spend time with?

I look forward to meeting you and your child on the first day of school–Tuesday, September, 3rd! Have a great last few weeks of summer!

APPROVED VOLUNTEERS ONLY!!:    I’m hoping to have a parent, family member, or friend of each student visit our classroom at least once this year! You can read books aloud, discuss your career or teach us something important about your culture. This amazing opportunity will be on Tuesday afternoons from 2:15 – 2:45 PM. The catch is you can’t tell your child when you will be coming – that is what makes you a Surprise Visitor
Sign Up using Classtag coming soon!

If for some reason you’re unable to make your assigned date, please contact the person who has the date you would like to switch to. If the switch works out, let me know about it so I can update my schedule. If you’re unable to find a substitute, please let me know ASAP!  We want everyone to have a turn!

If you read aloud– please bring 3-5 books to the class. No toys or treats, you reading to us is the best treat of all!
