I am so excited to be joining the DPS family this year! This is my 13th year teaching. I have spend the last 12 years at San Marcos Elementary teaching 3rd grade! I have 5 children: 3 that attend here at DPS and 2 future Suns at home!

New Parents Aug. 2019 

I use ClassDojo to communicate with parents most often.  I can send whole class or individual messages in the Class Dojo App.  I love taking pictures and videos during class to share with you in Dojo as well. Download the app or log into your existing account.  I will give you an individual code at back to school night.

1st Grade Back to School Night is Wed. Aug. 21st 5:30.  I will have more information about our year to share with you.

Each child will have a drawer with a very small basket for individual supplies. Donations of gift cards to Amazon, Walmart, Target, Lakeshore, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or Staples will be used to purchase items needed during the year. Thank you for all donations that help our classroom and students!  First Grade Tips

  • Please keep all toys, trinkets, jewelry, and special treasures at home. Clean out backpacks often.
  • Weekly envelopes are sent home weekly with school paperwork and some classwork. Please empty the envelope and send back the following day. Check for papers to sign and return.
  • Label backpacks and all water bottles, lunch boxes, hats, sweatshirts etc. with first name and last name.
  • Life skills homework: Shoe tying- this would be a wonderful thing to practice before school starts back
  • The beginning of the year is exhausting for everyone. Most first graders have not been at school for a full day before. Be prepared for them to be wiped out when they come home. Provide extra healthy snacks, early dinner, and extra bedtime. They will get used to it but it takes a few weeks to get in the new routine.


I am looking forward to a great year with all of my students and their families!
