Welcome back to a new school year! I am happy to be teaching at Cypress Cove Elementary for my seventeenth year. I have taught preschool for five years and first grade for 19 years. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in elementary education and have been teaching for a total of twenty four years. My goal as a teacher is to foster independence in my students so that they can be life long learners. I firmly believe in educating the whole child through a multi-sensory environment in order to promote a love for learning. I look forward to working together to make this a wonderful school year for your child!
