3rd-5th Grade Education Specialist
Welcome! I’ve worked for Lawrence Public Schools since 1984. During the years, I’ve taught students in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades, provided professional development and assistance to new and veteran teachers as a District Learning Coach, and have taught homebound students in grades 7-12,
I greatly appreciate the flexibility Lawrence Virtual School provides in allowing students to explore concepts depending on their individual goals, interests, and needs. I enjoy working and partnering with parents and colleagues as we support children and their individual successes. I relish moments when the light bulb of understanding burns brightly in the minds of students as they master a new concept, make a connection, or make new discoveries. I look for plenty of smiles along the way!
