Dear Future Sixth Grader!
Welcome to 6C! I hope that you are having an amazing summer and looking forward to your sixth-grade year at Jamison this coming fall! I’m thrilled to be a Jamison Jet again this year and can’t wait to make lasting memories together! J-E-T-S! JETS! JETS! JETS!
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. My teaching journey began in Lawrence Township, New Jersey after college where I taught in a learning support classroom as well as second grade for a couple of years. Then in 2005, I began teaching at Gayman Elementary in Central Bucks School District, where I taught first grade for three years. After this experience, I took some time off from teaching to raise my three young children. During this time, I tutored a variety of students across grade levels. I returned to Central Bucks in 2015 as an instructional assistant working with the reading specialists at Groveland Elementary. A few years later, I accepted a second-grade position at Linden Elementary, and then continued teaching at Groveland, Cold Spring, and now Jamison for sixth grade. Sixth grade is such a special year!
This summer I am busy with my three growing children (ages 13, 10, and 7) who attend Pine Run Elementary School and Tohickon Middle School in Central Bucks School District. We have been spending time on the baseball field and swimming this summer. One of my favorite hobbies during the summer is catching up on my reading list. Currently, I am reading a memoir novel. Did you know we learn about memoirs in sixth grade? It's one of my favorite reading units! I am looking forward to traveling to Myrtle Beach for a week this summer. I can’t wait to learn about you!!!
