Welcome to third grade! I am the 3B ELA teacher. This is my first year at St. Edwards, but I've been teaching for some time now. One of my passions is language and I am excited to guide our learners through an amazing year of reading and writing. My goals are for both subjects to be pleasurable and exciting! Learners will build foundation skills to understand the world around them and to be understood.
