Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 5th grade! I am so THRILLED to be your child’s teacher this year! All of my daughters have either attended or currently attend Lisa J Mails. I have always loved this school, and it was my dream to teach here. We are going to have a POZitively fun-filled year with learning and adventure. I believe that every child has a unique learning style and pace of learning. In my teaching, strive to make sure each child understands that they are not only capable of learning, but also capable of succeeding. Every child in our classroom will have a sense of belonging, usefulness, influence, and competence. Learning comes in all forms, and I love to focus on the journey of learning rather than the destination. Your child will begin to say, “There’s more than one way to get to Disneyland.” You may want to ask them about that after the first day of school.
I can’t wait to learn all about you, but first, here’s a bit about me. I was born and raised in New Jersey, and I am the youngest of four. I have an extensive background of traveling and learning, but I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. My husband, Christopher, and I have been married for 20 years. We have three daughters: Avery, Brooke, and Scarlett. We also have one crazy dog named Mighty. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spin classes, watching football, and spending quality time with my family. If you didn't already know, I am a HUGE Green Bay Packers fan! Go Pack Go!!!
I am so excited to get to know your child. This is going to be an exciting year together!
