    About The Teacher: This is my fifteenth year at Prospect Elementary School, and my third year in first grade! I enjoy teaching your children here in Salamanca. I am an educator because I have a love for learning, and I aspire to bring out the best in all the children that walk into my classroom. I hope by time they leave first grade my students have positive feelings toward learning.
    I live in Portville with my husband Tim, my 15 year old daughter Hannah, and my 12 year old son Zackary. Also, I have a 23 year old daughter, Kelsea, who lives in Olean with her basset hound Elvira.  Plus, I have a daughter who recently joined the Navy and is stationed at Oceana in Virginia Beach. Kathlyn is 25 years old.
    I have resided in New York most of my life and look forward to giving children the same educational opportunities that I have experienced.
    In February 2006, I received my master's degree through the University at Buffalo.
    Mission For The Class: My mission is to provide your child with the most positive learning experience. I want to create an environment where your child feels safe and excited about learning. I feel strongly that the academic success of your child depends on both parents and teacher working together as a team.
