From Wheeler Student, to Wheeler Parent, to Wheeler Teacher

Wheeler Avenue School has been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Not only did I attend Wheeler 
from Kindergarten to Grade 6, but my two grown children did as well!  Becoming a Wheeler teacher in 
the year 2000, after my son graduated, was a dream come true.  Needless to say, I can relate to my 
students and their families on many levels. (SEE IF YOU CAN FIND ME IN MY WHEELER FOURTH GRADE

Hint:  I should have combed my bangs better!)

My Mission

I strive to understand my students as individual learners with special needs, learning styles and interests. 
Through understanding and sensitivity, I work to guide my students toward academic success 
and self advocacy.
