Subjects Taught


Welcome to Moline Elementary!  I hope you and your child are looking forward to Kindergarten.  I am very excited to meet and work with your child!

Kindergarten is the most important year in your child's life.  It is a special time when your child can develop a love for learning.  You will be amazed at the developments that will occur over this school year.  They are not only learning to read and write, but are also developing positive attitudes toward independence, exploration, cooperation, motivation, and creativity.  It will be so fun to watch your child grow!

I'm sure you are curious about me, so I thought I would tell you a little about myself.  I graduated from Webster University with a Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education and will start my masters at Mizzou University in the fall.  I have been married to my husband, Beau, for eight years.  We will soon have two beautiful children.  My son will be turning seven this March.  His name is Oscar.  My daughter Olivia will be born this November.  I love to read, shop, and play with my sweet baby.

As your child's kindergarten teacher, my goal is to help your child develop physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually by offering a variety of learning experiences.  I am a facilitator, offering your child daily "hands-on" experiences to challenge him or her in all areas of learning. 

I believe that educating your child is a partnership between you and I.  Please feel free to call me or email at any time with questions or input.
