Hello Parents and Students,
I am very excited to teach Fifth Grade again this year at Havens. I love working here and I enjoy working with Fifth Graders. My goal for the year is to help every student move forward with their academic knowledge in a lively and focused environment.
Before I came to Havens, I spent three years as a Teacher on Special Assignment in the Oakland Unified School District coordinating the K-12 efforts to develop and sustain School Gardens as outdoor classrooms to teach science, math and nutrition.
I have been a Middle School and Elementary School teacher and an assistant principal.
Personally, I am married and have four children of my own. I have two in Fourth Grade, one in Seventh and my oldest is starting High School. My family is very involved in the Piedmont Swim Team and the Piedmont Boy Scouts.
Please stop by Room 340 before school starts to meet me and check out the classroom and the supply list.
