2nd Grade Standards

I have been a teacher for the last 20 1/2 years. I started my career teaching 3rd grade in Florida in January 1999. I taught there for 1 1/2 years before a military move brought me to Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri. I taught kindergarten my first 2 years here at Laquey Elementary before being hired to teach in the Waynesville district. I taught kindergarten at Thayer Elementary on Ft. Leonard Wood for one year then I taught 1st grade for a couple of weeks before I was asked to return to 3rd grade at East Elementary. I taught at East for the next 3 years. When Freedom Elementary opened in 2006, 3rd grade was moved here. I taught 3rd grade until Aug. 2017 when I moved down to 2nd grade. This moved filled my gap, so now I've taught kindergarten through 3rd grade. I am looking forward to another wonderful year in 2nd grade.

I have 2 dogs. Buddy is a pomeranian mix who will be 13 years old in Aug. My wild child is Gibbs who is a beagle shepherd mix who will be 1 year old in Dec.
