Hello! Welcome to my 2nd grade webpage! I am so excited to begin teaching 2nd grade this year. I have taught fourth grade for 10 years and fifth grade for 1 year here at Colony. I am not originally from London. I was born and raised in Evarts, Kentucky. Evarts is a very small town in Harlan County. I went to North Evarts Elementary, Evarts Junior High and Evarts High School. After graduating from Evarts High School, I attended the University of Kentucky. Go Wildcats! (I'm a huge wildcat fan!) I married my husband, Chris, after graduating from UK. We lived in Lexington for 3 years while he completed law school. While in Lexington, I was a teaching assistant at Tates Creek Elementary. Also, while in Lexington, I gave birth to my twin daughters, Delaney and Lyndsee, in May 1997. Chris, also, graduated law school that same May. It was a very busy month. We moved to London that August. We have been living in London for 16 years. I had my youngest daughter Emily in 2000. I stayed at home with my girls until Delaney and Lyndsee started kindergarten. That was when I got my first teaching job here at Colony Elementary.
Colony Elementary holds a special place in my heart and always will for several reasons. First, all three of my girls have attended Colony and I couldn't have asked for a better educational experience for them. Secondly, I have met many, many wonderful students and parents while working here. Thirdly, I admire the dedication and love the teachers here at Colony give our kids. Lastly, I think we have the BEST elementary school in the county.
Please use my website as a tool to keep you informed about the events in my classroom. Spelling lists, parties, websites, etc. are just a few of the things that you will find by following the links on the left hand site of the page. Also, check out the writing page where you can blog with me!!! Don't worry parents, the blog can't be published until I ok it!
Thanks! Let's have a great year!
