About Me

Welcome second graders! I am so excited to start my second year as a second grade teacher at Edgemere Elementary. I graduated from Salisbury University with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in outdoor leadership. I love being at the beach and spending time with my family. I also enjoy playing sports and watching the Ravens!


Our Class Expectations

Edgemere Elementary Pride:

   Persist with all tasks.
 Respect my teachers, peers, and myself.
Interact kindly.
 Do my best always.
Enjoy our diversity.

Class Dojo:

Our class will be using Class Dojo this year. ClassDojo is a behavior management tool for the classroom. You can download the "Class Dojo" app on any Smartphone. Every student has a Dojo account to which teachers can give or take away points throughout the day. Student's daily point value will be written on their month's calendar that can be found in their blue Friday folder. Please initial/sign their calendar each day. Students will use the following point system for behavior at the end of the day:

5-6 points= Student went above and beyond and had an amazing day!

3-4 points= Student had a great day and was focused on learning.

0-2 points= Student is determined to come to school ready to do their best the next school day.
