Hello!Thank you for taking the time to visit our classroom website. I wanted to give you a little bit of background on myself since your child spends every weekday with me! This is my 13th year working for Lancaster, my 12th year teaching the integrated program. I absolutely love teaching this age level and working with children with special needs. They all hold a special place in my heart and make my job something I look forward to each day!I grew up in Wales Center with my parents, younger sister and younger twin brothers. I attended Iroquois Central School District from Kindergarten-12th grade. I graduated in 2000. After high school, I went on to Buffalo State College. I graduated from Buffalo State College in 2004 with my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood and Childhood Education as well as Early Childhood and Childhood Special Education certifications and a concentration in mathematics. I began my Master's Degree immediately after. In December of 2007, I completed my Master's Degree program at Buffalo State as a Literacy Specialist. It has offered me many ideas and strategies for reading and writing to bring back into the classroom to utilize.I currently live in Wales Center with my two boys, Brennan and Callan. Brennan is turning 9 and entering 3rd grade at Wales Primary. Callan is 6 and entering 1st grade at Wales Primary. They are very excited to start a new school! We just moved into the Iroquois district from Alden.I truly enjoy working with your child every day! I am always open to any suggestions, questions, concerns or comments that you may have at any time throughout the year. Please do not hesitate to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.I hope you find the website useful and worthwhile. Enjoy!
