Charter Oak International Academy feels like a second home to me. I have been fortunate enough to learn, grow and build amazing memories here for more than a decade now. I taught first grade at the beginning of my career. I loved my time in first grade and then Kindergarten came along and stole my heart.
I earned an Undergraduate Degree from the University of Connecticut. GO HUSKIES! I continued on to get my Masters from Central Connecticut State University. When I am at home, my heart is filled with the love of three amazing people. My husband Mike and I are so blessed to have two awesome little boys, Gaines and Graydon. Our family also includes two whippet dogs. I love to be busy with adventures, exploring outside and getting goofy whenever possible.
I truly want every child who leaves my classroom and to understand this message:
"Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have." – Margaret Mead
