Meet Our Faculty

I have been teaching third grade since 2004 and I love every minute of it. Reading books is one of my hobbies, and I am fortunate to coach the Grade 4-5 Battle of the Books team at Highland School. My other passion is the outdoors.. My family and I frequently go for hikes in the nearby mountains. I take the love of the outdoors and share it with my students in our study of the United States and its diverse regions. Each year I am always amazed at students curiosity and eagerness to learn new things. In my classroom we work together to create a cooperative learning environment where everyone is able to grow and excel. We talk about our hopes and dreams and the students learn to be supportive of each other in their academic and social growth. I feel Highland instills a sense of community, encourages students to reach their highest potential and empowers children to become lifelong learners.
