Welcome to the 'Fin'tastic Fish First Grade Class! The 2016 - 2017 school year marks my eleventh year as a Mirror Lake Miner. The Lake is a very special place to belong. We will be working  this year to teach your child to love, love, love learning. Families will be amazed at what the their students will know before they move up to second grade. (Can you tell how excited I am???)



My youngest son and my pearl cockateil share my home in Douglasville with me. My oldest son and his wife have three children. My daughter and son-in-law have two. That makes FIVE grands!!!    I enjoy teaching immensely and, when I am not at school, my favorite things to do are worship at my church,  sewing, reading, swimming and spending time with my family. favorite candy is M&M's
