This is where you'll find all the information needed to be successful in our ELA and SS class!
Welcome to 4th grade at Dune Lakes Elementary! As I begin my 20th year of teaching, I am overjoyed to be with the Dune Lakes community as we open our phenomenal new facility. I received both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in my home state of Mississippi before continuing my studies at UCONN, focusing on gifted education. Completing the Joseph Renzulli Confratute on Gifted Education at UCONN ignited a passion for providing all students engaging, exciting, creative, collaborative learning opportunities. I have spent 17 years teaching middle school ELA and Social Studies. This will be my 3rd year teaching elementary students. I have also served as an instructional coach, grade level chair, and faculty advisor for Teach for America candidates throughout the U.S. I am passionate about keeping students engaged in learning and look forward to a great year fostering critical thinking, global perspectives, and high achievement in 4th grade!
