Welcome to Our Class Page! 

The 2019-2020 school year will be my second year at Occoquan Elementary and my eleventh year teaching altogether.  I have spent most of my teaching career in a first grade classroom, but I have tutored almost all grade levels. I am excited to challenge students in fifth grade this year. I have my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education (with a minor in Science) as well as a Master's degree in Elementary Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a minor in Science. I consider myself quite the Science nerd. I look forward to working with all of my students this year!

We are going to work hard this year while we become more informed learners and continue to personally improve ourselves. We are going to have an amazing year!

Update: As mentioned in my previous e-mail, we have received guidance from Dr. Walts and Mr. Lint regarding online instruction. We were told to hold off on assigning any NEW material until March 27, therefore I will NOT be posting any other assignments on Teams. I will continue to update you all with the current information as we receive it. I still encourage students to take the time these next few weeks to explore a topic that interests them and to READ, READ, READ!  I will be posting some fun links on Teams for students to explore as well! 

I know that some of you may be facing a hardship in one way or another due to this virus. Please know that my thoughts are with you all. If you are in need of meal assistance for your child, please click this link and then click on "Meal Service" to find more information about service times and locations.

Remember, the 5th grade classes are all meeting on Zoom at 1:00PM every day. Students should check Teams for daily information by 12:30!


 Thank you all for your support and patience during this time!
