Welcome to First Grade! I have been teaching first grade since 2002 and greatly enjoy it! First grade is a wonderful time when students are continuing to learn how to read, write, and learn a variety of math concepts. I enjoy creating fun and interesting lessons for my students. My husband, Jeff, and I are both Tri-Valley graduates. We have one daughter, Kaylee, who keeps us very busy with all of her academics and sports. She plays volleyball, basketball, and participates in track and field events. This past summer she participated in the National Junior Olympics and finished strong in throwing the discus, shot put, javelin, and hammer. We love swimming, fishing, boating, traveling, and cheering for the Tri-Valley Scotties, the OSU Buckeyes, and the Cleveland Browns! GO DAWGS! GO BUCKS! GO BROWNS!
