This is my second year at Richardson Elementary School as a 5th grade science and my first year as a 4th grade science teacher. I previously spent 20 years at Bolich Middle School- 16 years in 6th grade and 4 years in 7th grade. I graduated from University of Akron in Dec. 1992 with a BA in education grades 1-8. I have completed a masters' degree equivalency in credit hours. I have a husband, a daughter, a dog, a turtle, and a rabbit. All of the animals are rescues - there are many more at Petfinder.com in case you are looking. We have a river ecosystem aquarium in our classroom with various fish, plants, and tadpoles that will hopefully turn into frogs. The students are also amazed to discover the microorganisms swimming in there under a microscope. I will read anything I can get my hands on. Please call or email with any questions or concerns - I am very approachable and look forward to working with you and your child and helping them discover the amazing world of science all around them!
