About Me

Hello!  This is my 15th year at the Dawe School and 7th year teaching Kindergarten.  I am looking forward to a great year in Kindergarten!  I love to teach Kindergarten and my favorite part is watching my students grow socially, physically, emotionally and academically from September through June.  Each child has his/her own unique way of learning.  My goal is to teach and help each student become a self-confident learner and to reach his/ her best potential.  I look forward to the upcoming year getting to know your child and have fun learning through songs, games, centers and stories. My students are truly my children in school, but I do have 3 children of my own at home.

My children are my pride and joy.  My son, Timothy is a 2011 graduate of Stoughton High and a 2015 graduate of Plymouth State University, and is employed by Sentient Jet in Braintree. Victoria is a 2017 graduate of BU and was a goaltender for the BU Women's Hockey Team.  She is employed by Fidelity in Boston and she will be playing her second season in the NWHL  as a goaltender for the Boston Pride for the 2020/2021 hockey season.   Elizabeth is a 2017 graduate of Tabor Academy and will be a Senior at Elmira College this fall, where she will be a goaltender for the Elmira Women's Hockey team.  She is pursuing a degree in Speech Pathology.  This upcoming hockey season I will be making a few 6 hour road trips to see Elizabeth play.  My husband was a hockey goaltender for Providence College and he has passed his talent down to all three children.  He has recently retired as a goaltender coach and has coached players at Stoughton High, Foxboro High, Stonehill College, Harvard Women's Team and Massachusetts Spitfires.   My favorite hobby is photography and in years past I have gotten many pictures of my children in sports. Other interests of mine are listening to classic rock, walking, hiking, kayaking, and just relaxing at home in my back yard.  A few of my favorites things are: hockey, Summer; seafood; coffee, anything that blings and the color red.
