Welcome to third grade! I hope that you and your child enjoy his/her school year. I have lots of fun and exciting activities planned! Third grade is another step towards independence and responsibility of the child. Please feel free to call me at school between 7:30 and :45 or email me if you have any questions or concerns. Communication between parents and teachers help make it a successful year for all of us!
Now, a little about me. This will be my 16th year at Carlisle Elementary. Previously, I taught fourth grade at Martensdale-St. Marys. My husband, John, was a high school social studies teacher at Martensdale-St. Marys. I have three children. Katelyn will be a freshman at the University of Iowa. My son, William, will be a sophomore in high school, and Carolyn will be an eighth grader. We also have a three year old Boston Terrier named Ellie. All my children are in sports. Needless to say, there have been many hours spent on a football field, baseball field, basketball court, or track during the school year as well as the summer. When not watching a game, I enjoy hanging out with family and friends, playing games, reading, hiking, and baking.
I am looking forward to working with you and your child. Let's have a great year!
