•  Dear Parents,


                Welcome to your child’s 5th Grade Science course! I am very passionate about working with children, and I love seeing the “light bulb” shine bright when my students are excelling. In this course, your child’s time here will be spent well. I make every minute count.


                I am excited to be serving as your child’s Science teacher. This is my first year at Collins-Riverside Intermediate School, but I have been in the TCSS for three years. Previously, I have served at Crestmont Elementary, so my face may not be new for some individuals, but to some, it may be. I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from The University of West Alabama. I enjoy shopping, traveling, and spending time with my family. I believe that parents and teachers are a team.


                At Collins-Riverside, we educate, empower, and enable all students to become RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, AND RESILIENT in an ever-changing world. We aim to provide a safe and orderly environment that allows every child to achieve their highest potential as confident, competent, and compassionate individuals. I am looking for a fantastic year ahead. With your help, we can make it happen. If there are any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
