This year is going to ROCK!

I hope you are having a restful and fun summer! The beginning of the year is right around the corner. Teaching is my absolute favorite thing to do. Don’t get me wrong- I love summer: the beach, time with friends, barbecues, and good books. Reading is one of my favorite summer activities. I hope that you’ve enjoyed some good books this summer! Remember that you need to read one MCBA book and fill out the note-taking paper that you got at the end of the year. Do you need another copy of the note-taking paper? Click here!
There are some “supplies” that you’ll need to bring with you to Room 235. Please bring a positive attitude, determination, curiosity, and respect. Do you remember the sign that’s hanging in the front of our classroom? It says “It Takes All Kinds of Kinds.” This is a daily reminder that it’s important to accept and embrace everyone’s differences. We are all different, which makes this world a fantastic place!
I’d love to hear from you before school starts. Feel free to email me at You can share some things you’ve done over the summer, what you’re looking forward to, what you might be nervous about or even some suggestions for this year. Also, bookmark our classroom blog on your computer at home if you have one.
Enjoy the rest of your summer! Soak up the sunshine. Read a good book. Laugh with friends and family. Get ready for an awesome year!

I spent a lot of time on the beach this summer. 
My favorite part was spending time
with my niece, Olivia, in Maine and on Cape Cod.
