Welcome Sixth Grade Team

I feel very lucky to have joined the 6th Gr team this year.  I am so happy to be working alongside my excellent colleagues; Mr. O'Rourke and Mr. Craine.

The "History" of Me:

I am a proud, former student of Lloyd Harbor.  It was a dream of mine to one day return here as a teacher. It gives me great joy to be back teaching Social Studies and Literacy.  I've spent the last eleven years teaching upper grades and excited to be teaching sixth grade again!  On a more personal note, my passions include reading and traveling; especially, to historical sites.  During college, I studied abroad in Rome and concentrated on art-history.  After college, I went on to receive my Masters in Literacy.  I'm so happy to be here, at Lloyd Harbor, teaching the subjects I have so much affection for.



I strongly believe in the phrase "it takes a village".  We all want the best for your child.  I know that the biggest commonality between Lloyd Harbor and home is that we all want your child to enter Middle School feeling confident and prepared.  The number one way to ensure this is to have open communication between all the adults in your child's life.  Ensuring their success is a team effort and I'm thrilled to be on the same team with all of you.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to me regarding your child's academic or social-emotional growth. To set up a meeting you can reach out to me via email or phone.

Classroom Tools:

 Class Dojo

In class, we use Class Dojo.  It is a website that helps us keep track of the student's positive behaviors.  In all West Side classrooms we are constantly looking for "the good" in each other and this site allows us to monitor the awesome things your child does on a daily basis.  Some behaviors we focus on include "keeping it clean", "showing grit", "following the charter" and many others.  Please email me if you would like to be connected and oversee how they contribute to the community.
