About Me
Biographical Sketch: 

I have been teaching second grade at TCKS for 20 years.  I was lucky to find a home at Traut right after finishing my masters degree in elementary education.  I also hold an undergraduate degree in psychology with a minor in vocal performance.  I love teaching all of the second grade core knowledge curriculum, but hold a special place in my heart for history and developing budding writers. 

My husband, Danny, teaches English to middle and high school students.  My son is a 7th grader at Kinard and my daughter is a third grader at Traut!

When I find time for hobbies, you can find me in my flower and organic vegetable beds at home.  Nothing brings a sense of connection with nature like dirt under my nails and sweat on my brow. 

What I like about Traut is...: 

Traut offers the perfect blend of content and skills development. The children who exit our halls at the end of fifth grade are bringing with them an unparalleled educational experience. I truly feel blessed to be part of the collaborative team of colleagues and parents we have at our school. Everything I do in my classroom on a daily basis wouldn't be possible without our parent partners!

Hobbies & Interests include...: 

Gardening, scrapbooking, playing with my children, and singing.

My favorite books and authors are...: 

I LOVE children's books! Favorite authors: Patricia Polacco, Paul Goble, Demi,and many more!

Favorite Quote: 

It is not until you become a mother that your judgment slowly turns to compassion and understanding. Erma Bombeck
