I am beyond thrilled for the opportunity to join the OES community!  This will be my 17th year in elementary education, serving as a classroom teacher, literacy interventionist, and a State Reading Coach.  I look forward to meeting all of you and partnering together to help our little owls learn and grow as students and as leaders.
