Welcome to 3rd Grade! I am so excited to work with your child and you this year! This will be my third year teaching third grade at Jeffrey School. Previously for 19 years I taught 2nd grade in the Madison school system. I started at Ryerson, moved to Academy School and transitioned to Jeffrey (once Academy School's doors closed in 2004). Prior to teaching in Madison, I taught 4th-6th grades in the East Hartford and Waterford school districts. My husband and I both grew up in Madison and attended the Madison schools, graduating from Daniel Hand. Because of our love of this beautiful shoreline community and the fantastic schools, we chose to raise our own children here as well. Our oldest, Katie, graduated from Daniel Hand in 2018 and now attends Fairfield University. Our son Sean is a now a senior at DHHS. I look forward to this year's adventure in 3rd grade with your child and you. Building a supportive classroom community, where students feel safe to take risks in their academic and social learning, is my mission as I "steer our ship" toward a successful year. My goal is that room 15 will be a place where your child will feel welcome and look forward to coming each day in order for him/ her to be open for learning!
