Hi 4th grade Gators! I am excited to again work with previous Gateway students' families and meet many new families. This will be my 10th year at Gateway Pointe. Previously, I taught 10 years in southwest Michigan and 2 years in Tolleson. For 33 years, the state of Michigan was my heart and my home. My husband's job change brought me to the desert. We now live in Mesa with our daughter (a new GWP kindergartner!), 2 dogs, 3 cats, 1 beta fish, an ant farm, and a praying mantis. Yikes!
I will be seeing all 3 classes for writing and social studies, and I will see one class for science. It may sound confusing, but don't worry! We are here to help. I am looking forward to meeting all of you! I believe if we all work as a team, we can make this a great year!
