Welcome to Rosedale: Third Grade
I am excited to work with your child this year. Your child will learn a lot this year and will become increasingly more independent. I believe that we are partners in your child's education and I know that by working together we can help your child to have a successful year.
A little about myself:
I have 23 plus years teaching in LPS. I have taught grades 3-6. I taught 6th grade at Mckinley for several years until the Legacy in 2006, then I was assigned to Coolidge where I continued teaching grades 3 and 4. I started teaching at Rosedale. a few years ago. Prior to my employment in Livonia, I worked in a Catholic school, St. Valentine in Redford, for 12 years. I did my studies at Michigan State University for my Bachelor's Degree and later earned my Master Degree at Eastern Michigan University. I love to read and can be found reading not only professional resources, but children's books, as well. My favorite author of children's books is Patricia Polacco. The adult authors I enjoy are Harlen Coban and Danielle Steel. I enjoy gardening and scrapbooking in my spare time.
I am married and live in Wolverine Lake. We have two adult children, ages 23 and 27. My 27 year old graduated from Grand Valley State University and is living at home while she pays off her student loans.She is saving to purchase a house. My 23 year old married a marine and is currently living in California.. We have a 13-year-old cat and 9-year-old dog. Our dog has only been with us for a few years. He is a rescue and is part Black Lab and part Great Pyranees.
I do most of my communication via email and class dojo. Please feel free to contact me at : firstname.lastname@example.org
