Degrees and Certifications:
I am thrilled to be teaching fourth grade at 4/5 Academy in Decatur. I have been an educator since 1997. Most of my career consists of teaching third, fourth and fifth grade in Boston/Cambridge and the surrounding areas. I have a Master’s Degree in Education from Wheelock College in Boston. My family and I moved to Georgia in 2013. I spent the 2014-15 school year opening Westchester as a third grade teacher. I am passionate about building a strong classroom community using Responsive Classroom in order for students to feel safe taking risks to optimize learning.
