    Hi!  I have been teaching for 20 years (ten of them at Russell), and I love second graders!  I received my B.A. in Education from the University of Kentucky, and my M.A. in Elementary Curriculum from Georgetown College. 
     
    I live outside of Stevensville with my husband and two sons, ages 16 and 18.  We love skiing, snowboarding, rafting, kayaking, backpacking, mountain biking...anything that gets us outside having adventures!
     
    My educational philosophy can be summed up with this quote by William Butler Yeats:
    "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."
    My goal is to make learning fun, and to help learners feel confident and excited about school!
