Getting to Know the Teacher

I I have been teaching elementary school for the past 18 years. I have taught both 4th and 5th grade. This year I have moved to the middle school and will teach 6th grade Social Studies.
   I went to the University of Connecticut for my undergraduate degree in Anthropology and I went to Washington State for a masters in Archaeology. I completed all the course work but not my thesis because I decided to switch over to teaching! I graduated with a Masters of Teaching degree instead, in 2001, and I have been teaching ever since. I did work as an Archaeologist throughout my years at school and I have some pretty good stories! 

I am originally from New Jersey. Most of my family still lives there, including my mom and dad and my 2 older brothers. I moved to Kansas City in 2001. 

I am married and just celebrated my 18th wedding anniversary! I have 2 kids, Maxwell is 15 and in 10th grade and Gabrielle is 12 and in 7th grade. I also have 3 cats! Kevin, Simon, and Zeus!
