    3rd Grade 2014-2015

    This is my 6th year teaching at Westside and I love being a Westside Eagle! I attended Westside Elementary in 3rd and 4th grade, so I know first hand what an awesome school Westside is!

    I received my Bachelor's of Science in Human Development from Virginia Tech (GO HOKIES!), and my Master's of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Radford University. I have taught first, second, and third grade, as well as a variety of after school/home based instructional levels.


  • Please check the purple folder EVERY DAY- important events, homework, and any paperwork or homework will be sent home this way. Any papers to be signed will be here, as well!

  • Reading Tests will be on Fridays- PLEASE READ the weekly story in the reading book! This will help prepare for the reading and vocabulary test


  • Spelling Tests will be every other Friday- look in the planner for bi-weekly words

  • Science tests will be announced as soon as we start a new unit!

  • Reading and Math homework will be the same all year- students will have a "Spiral Review Board" for math. This will introduce new skills and "spiral back" to old skills. There will be a nightly reading log for reading.

  • This year, we are using Class DoJo as a behavior system. PLEASE SIGN UP FOR DOJO! This is the BEST way to communicate with us and hear how your child is doing day to day. Think of it as "school social media"- I can safely message you pictures, and you can see points earned/lost through the day! The app on your phone is the easiest way to access DoJo. 


Please email me if you have any questions!
