Welcome to 2nd Grade!!
Hello everyone! I hope y'all had a fabulous summer and are ready to start an exciting new year at OVE!
Here is a little about me. . . .
I received my degree in education from the University of Southern Indiana. I am a native Floridian (grew up in Jacksonville) but married and transplanted a Hoosier!!
I have been teaching for 15 years. I previously taught 2nd and 5th grades in Duval County and I then moved to Clay County Schools. I taught 3rd grade for five years (at Clay HIll and OakLeaf) and since at OVE I've taught second, then first and second again:)
I live in Clay County with my husband of eighteen years and two cats, Tiger and Paco. I enjoy eating out, especially since I do not cook and The Cheesecake Factory, Cantina Laredo, and Chili's are among my favorite places to dine. I also enjoying reading and traveling.
2nd grade rocks!!
I can't wait to meet each of you and begin our trip to the beach, riding the waves of learning together! Our journey this year will involve creating a fun-filled and safe classroom environment with every student -
- feeling comfortable to share ideas and opinions,
- being successful in academics,
- promoting the social and emotional well being of each other.
It's going to be great!!
