I am so happy to have your child in my group this year. I have taught school for 28 years. I have always taught in Sumter County. I have taught 4th grade and 2nd grade. This year I will be teaching EIP groups in three classrooms.  I'm looking forward to working with your child this year. We will be working on lots of reading and math every day.

I have 1 child Zoe. She does have 4 legs and a tail, but she is my baby. Zoe will be 15 on October 2, 2012. I am planning on having a birthday party for her. Her Mimi (my mother) bought her a dress for her birthday. I'm sure that you have heard about my baby. Don't get me started talking about her or I will never stop.  My birthday is on October 5, 2014. I'm planning on spending it with my mom, sister, brother-in-law, niece, and nephew. We are planning on taking a trip somewhere. 

On December 25th, 2012, I got a wonderful Christmas present. While the rest of you were at home opening presents, I was seeing my sweet niece being born. She is named Grace Elizabeth. She is the most special thing to me. I can talk and show you millions of pictures of her. I call her Doodle Bug. On June 20, 2014, my nephew was born. His name is Matthew Wade.  He is so sweet and gives the best hugs and kisses. He also has the nickname of Doodle Bug. I also have lots of pictures of him. I love to show off my sweet Doodle Bugs. 

Please feel free to come by the school or give me a call at school if needed. I'm looking forward to working with each and every one of you.
