Welcome to my class webpage! I am so excited to officially be a Cheetah after subbing at CLE for several years. I grew up in Lee's Summit and attended Blue Springs schools from kindergarten through high school. In fact, I attended CLE way, way back in 1991-92, the school's first year (my sixth grade year.) We opened the school and Voy Spears was the principal. I really am a Cheetah for life!
Two of my favorite things, besides teaching, are reading and spending time with my family and friends. I am also a huge animal lover, especially my rescue mini dachshund, Doogie. If you visit my classroom, you'll see lots of dachshund decorations - I'm a little obssessed!
I did my student teaching with 5th grade at Thomas Ultican Elementary, and have done several long-term sub jobs for 5th grade at CLE and TUE, so I know and truly love this age group! Fifth grade is such an exciting time for students, as they begin to transition from elementary to middle school. I look forward to getting to know my students and their families throughout the year.
I feel I have come full circle, from being a student at CLE to becoming a teacher here, and cannot be happier to be part of the CLE family. It's going to be a great year!
