Welcome to Second Grade!
I am excited to begin a new year with my new second graders. I look forward to watching your children learn and grow both academically and socially!
This will be my 29th year in the Portsmouth School System! It's hard to believe time went this quickly! Much of my career has been at the second grade level, actually 21 years of it. Prior to that I was at the Portsmouth Middle School!
Now a little bit about myself! I grew up right here on Aquidneck Island, actually in Newport, where I live today with my family. I have 3 sons, David, Daniel and Eric. David and Daniel both followed in my footsteps and currently work in the Newport Public Schools and South Kingston Public Schools. Eric, my youngest, is going into is Junior year at URI. I also live with my brother in law, who is 40 years old and is Downs Syndrome. My husband and I are his primary care givers and he brings us joy and laughter every day. Some of my hobbies include running, hiking and reading.
Again, I am very excited to work with your children this year. I love my job!
