Welcome to Black River Elementary! I have been a teacher at BR for 20 years. I graduated from the University of Akron with my bachelor's in Early Childhood Education along with a Reading Endorsement (K-12). In addition, I have my master's degree in Elementary Education. The absolute best part of my job is to work with my students! I love to create fun, hands on lessons for my students. When I am not at school, I love spending time with my husband and our twin sons who are 13 years old. I LOVE Disney, reading Nora Roberts books, traveling to the ocean and taking long walks outside.
Grade Level Statement
In kindergarten, students will work across all content areas to build foundational skills for their future educational career. Students will begin reading and writing and will learn beginning math skills including number sense, geometry and algebraic thinking(addition and subtraction). Students will be encouraged to demonstrate positive behavior in the classroom and school setting. We look forward to seeing your child progress through their learning in kindergarten!
