Hello Rice Community!!
Are you looking for adventure? Then look no further than 4th grade!
Energetic, enthusiastic, and with a zest for life describe my passion for living and teaching. As a native of Fort Collins, Colorado I have enjoyed having my desire for outdoor experiences easily fulfilled. I appreciate the simple pleasures of watching the changes of the seasons, a stimulating hike, snowshoe, or ski in the outdoors with my trusty companion Hobbs, fly fishing and camping, galloping through high mountain meadows filled with wildflowers on my horse, again with Hobbs, and spending quality time with friends and family.
The classroom is yet another passion for me. The thrill of facilitating children to discover and celebrate their many gifts, exposing them to the many knowledge opportunities available, dialoging about perspectives, and being challenged to provide the best learning community possible are my missions.
Learning is not something imparted in our classroom; learning is discovered! Children quickly discover my favorite word is “WHY”? Together we seek to attain the answers to our many questions, to make lasting connections, and above all else develop as thinkers, problem solvers, and citizens. In the end, the learning will extend beyond the mere academics into a holistic perspective of our world.
I welcome you to our adventure and community!!
