5th Grade Math & Science

Text me through School Status
OFFICE HOURS: Monday-Friday 2:20-3:05

I am a UofM graduate, class of 2008, with a bachelors of science in education.  I am certified for K-6.  Fifth grade has been my favorite grade to teach so far, so I consider myself very fortunate to be teaching Science and Math to your kiddos at DCES.  

I am a mother of 4 beautiful children ranging from 5-14 years old. They keep me busy in the best of ways.

When it comes to the education of your children, COMMUNICATION IS KEY! I have reached out to each of you via School Status. Please alert me asap if your phone number changes. Please do not hesitate to message me any day, any time and I will get back to you as quickly as possible. 

Thank you all for your support and dedication to your child's education. Together we can
