I am so excited to be teaching 5th grade at Bathgate this year!  It is so wonderful to be part of such a fabulous community of students, parents, teachers, and staff.  I bring over 16 years of experience to the classroom and I am looking forward to creating a fantastic year for our 5th graders!  I promise to make this last year at Bathgate a year full of lasting memories and lots of learning.

“If books could have more, give more, be more, show more, they would still need readers who bring to them sound and smell and light and all the rest that can’t be in books.
The book needs you.”
Gary Paulsen
