Welcome to Graystone Elementary!

2014 promises to be a great year in room E-24!

Graystone Elementary is a wonderful school. I have known this for the last 17 years! One might say we have a history together. I have had the pleasure of being part of many changes including two State Distinguished school awards and a National Blue Ribbon.

Sixteen years ago, I moved into room E-24 and have taught there ever since. Most years, I was busy teaching kindergarten, but have ventured as high as first grade and even a few combinations of first and kindergarten.

I’m looking forward to this year. I already have ideas and dynamics to share with my students and their families. To me, teaching is full of challenges but nothing compares with the delight of presenting a lesson in which both encourages growth and stimulates students to want more. My favorite is watching a student’s face light up when mastery is accomplished! I live for these moments!

During our year together, we will build a community; develop academic skills and work to reach our potential in all areas. Entering kindergarten is very exciting! It promotes a new avenue for children to mature, be more independent, and take on more responsibilities.  Students love this feeling of success and love school. I look forward to instilling this attitude towards education that will last a lifetime!
