    Teacher Message: Thanks for stopping by our classroom page. We will be very busy learning and having fun in fourth grade! Check back frequently for updates on classroom news and activities.
    Classroom Expectations: Students are to come to class each day ready to learn. Students are expected to come to class on time and prepared with needed materials. STUDENTS WILL HAVE HOMEWORK EVERY DAY. I will update the calendar with testing dates regularly.  Additionally, I utilize Class Dojo as a tool to communicate and share behavior progress. 
    Biography: This is my fifth year teaching at Ames VPA. I am so excited to begin another year here.  I earned my certification in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education from Missouri Baptist University. I have recently completed my Masters of Arts in Teaching and am almost finished with a certification in Special Reading K-12. In my free time, I enjoy spending time and making memories with husband of 18 years, our 4 children, and my family dog. 
     OUT OF SCHOOL LEARNING DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC-During this time of out of school learning, I will post updates, activities, and assignments both on my district web page and my Class Dojo page. You may contact me on my school email or message me in Class Dojo if you have any questions or concerns. You will also want to ensure you have the instructional packet provided by the district. These are available for pick up at the meal distribution schools.
