Dear Sixth Grade Student and Family,
Welcome to Hillcrest! Every year I am eager to meet the new 6th graders, and this year is no exception! I thought I would tell you a little about myself, so that you know who your teacher is and what makes me.....me!
I was born in Alaska, and moved to Alabama when I was two years old due to my dad being military. When my dad retired from the military, my family decided to call Enterprise our forever home. I attended Rucker Boulevard from third grade to sixth grade and graduated from Enterprise High in 2002 (Go Wildcats!). I attended Troy University and graduated with honors with my B.S. in Education in 2006. I decided to continue my eduaction and went back to Troy University and received my Master's Degree in Elementary Education.
My husband is from Geneva, and we have been married for eleven years. We have two beautiful daughters. Our oldest daughter is named Emma Rose (10 years old) and our youngest daughter is Jenna Grace (4 years old). Emma Rose attends Hillcrest and is in the fifth grade. Our family loves to travel and play outside. In fact, you might see us a lot at the ballparks, as Emma Rose plays softball year round.
Teaching is my passion and I love what I do. Nothing is more exciting to me than watching a student light up when he/she attains their individual goals. I'm a strong believer in communication between school and home. If you ever have a question or concern, please don't hesitate to contact me (email@example.com or leave a message at the front office.)
I'm looking forward to a great year getting to know each other, learning together, and making memories! Let me end this letter by saying, "Roll Tide!"
