I have been teaching Kindergarten at Amelia Earhart since our opening in 2001.  It is exciting to be a part of the Earhart staff.  Your child is going to have an amazing year as an Earhart Explorer.  She/He is going to learn so much.  I look forward to working with your child. I know we are going to have an an incredible year in Kindergarten.

This is our classroom pet, Tractor. Tractor is a Russian tortoise. He is over 20 years old. He was given to me by a former teaching partner. Tractor loves lettuce, carrots, apples and mangoes.  Feel free to bring him a treat!

We also have a new addition to our room our Beta Fish-Fishy!

So many things to be done

Kindergarten's so much fun
So many things to be done
