I am very excited to be teaching here at Carlisle Elementary. One of the things I love to share the most with my students is my love of reading! My hope is that the children will catch the excitement bug and discover a love of reading, if they don’t already have a passion for it. Another thing I enjoy doing is getting their brains turned on to math. Finally, we will explore writing together. It is exciting to see the students develop a love of writing. It isn’t just an assignment anymore. I hope that everyone will have a great year!
