The Philosophy in My 5th Grade Classroom
To encourage good study habits in preparation for entering middle school. To be a source of positive reinforcement and support for achievement and behavior.

What Students in My Classroom Need to Know
Everyone is expected to try hard and play fair.

What Parents of Students in My Classroom Need to Know
Every student is valued as an individual.

Outside of School
I enjoy exercise, nutrition, nature, reading on many subjects, and sports.

Physical Education
I have been the Physical Education teacher since 1989.  I have a strong belief in keeping oneself healthy and fit. My goal is to get my students moving and having fun at the same time. We enjoy many games that involve physical activity, teamwork and being a "good sport." A moving body is a happy body.

Education and Experience

I received my Bachelor of Science at SUNY at Old Westbury and my teaching certification through Wilson College.  I have been at teaching at St. Stephen's Episcopal School since 1988.
