"Knowing everything doesn't do you a bit of good unless you use it to put more beauty in this world"  -  from Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh

        Welcome to classroom M4 and M5.  I will continue as  Learning Specialist this year at Laurel Ridge Middle School.  You can reach me by email or telephone.  I am able to respond most quickly to email.  This year in addition to case managing students in 6th and 7th grade, I am teaching  Study Skills and Study Hall.  If you have questions or concerns about your child's individual study plan please contact me to set a convenient time to meet.  Meeting with your student's educational team is a task I am happy to facilitate.  

        My strengths are building strong relationships with students and encouraging them to follow their passions and be active learners.  I have been working with students with learning differences here in Sherwood since 2009.  During my free time I enjoy traveling, swimming, reading and hanging out with my family and my dogs Murphy and Rambo.
