My favorite children's picture book is The Empty Pot and my favorite children's novel is Johnny Tremain. When I was a child, my favorite books were: Lassie Come Home, The Incredible Journey, and The Boxcar Children.
I love watching my second grade students develop a passion for reading and grow in their reading and writing skills. I enjoy seeing the students applying the skills they have acquired through the year to build their confidence and explore their own interests through reading.
I enjoy reading, quilting, traveling, and walking in the foothills near our home.
