Welcome to Ladybug Land where the learning becomes LEGENDARY! I am so excited to be your child's Second Grade teacher this year! We are going to have an amazing year full of adventures. This will be my 28th year of teaching second grade.

I am passionate about working as a team; teacher, child, parent and feel privileged to support your little one meeting their fullest potential. I have a husband named, Kevin, two children- Kelsi and Kollin,  and a cute little dog named, Toby. I enjoy reading, spending time with family playing games, walking our dog and honestly- teaching! I am an avid Seahawks fan and have been attending games with my dad since they began their franchise in the Kingdome. I like to laugh and tell stories! I am so thrilled to venture into a wonderful year together.

 Optional math homework will be sent home occasionally and there is no consequence for not turning it in. 

Second Graders are also encouraged to read for 10-20+ minutes each night. This may be a combination of parent and student reading.

In Ladybug Land, we want to feel excited, gold, safe and joyful. We will show kindness by helping each other and talking in a friendly way. We will smile and laugh together. If there is a problem, we will ask someone to stop, get calm and talk it out. We can do our best to ignore unwanted attention and focus on learning. We deserve an AWESOME place to learn.
