Welcome to Garrettford and to First Grade!!! We have been waiting for you!!!!
A bit about me...
I have been teaching for 26 years--15 of which at the elementary level. First Grade is my thing! I love watching students grow in all areas! My students know that mistakes are allowed and celebrated! Additionally, my students know well that they need to exercise their bodies and their brains. The brain is something we can change and grow. So no more "I can't do it"! Our new mantra is " I can't do it, YET!"
My daughter Katie lives in Maryland and works in PR! My son Andrew is a senior at Colgate University in Hamilton, NY. It is cold there, but a dynamite university! Both of my children went through the Upper Darby school system! They learned so much and were well prepared for college and beyond! My turtle, Jeff, is 11 years old. Jeff is a Russian Tortoise who should be living at Colgate!! I love my profession, my family, my students, and my pets--those here and gone. I also love reading, walking, cycling, swimming, and the beach. Penn State football is my passion on fall weekends. Let's go State!
