Room 10

Welcome to Room 10!   I am very excited to be a part of this brilliant school!  I am so looking forward to working with and getting to know students and their families.

I am one of the 3 Block teachers who will be teaching Language  Arts and Social Studies.  I will also be teaching a Science class on the topic neurology and the brain.  I love rowing, reading, dog training, science, and social justice.

Stay tuned for more updates to our page throughout the school year!
