Bio

I grew up in Buxton, Maine and graduated from Bonny Eagle High School in 2006. I attended the University of Maine at Farmington and graduated in 2010 with a BS in Elementary Education and a concentration in Social Sciences. In May 2017, I completed my Masters Degree in Education with a concentration in curriculum strategies and instruction from the University of New England. From 2010 – 2011, I worked at Ellsworth Elementary Middle School as a Special Education Ed Tech. My first year of teaching (2011 - 2012) I taught at Hancock Grammar School as a 5th grade science teacher and a 6th grade social studies teacher. From 2012 - 2016, I taught 4th/5th grade at Cave Hill School. From 2016 - 2017, I taught 5th grade science and social studies and 6th - 8th grade science. This year, I am excited to be teaching 5th/6th grade social studies and 5 - 8 grade science.

6 - 8 Earth Science

The 6th - 8th graders are finishing up learning about Earth from space. We have learned about the day/night cycle, moon cycle, seasons, and the year. We will now be finishing our year learning about the space and the history of space. 

The 6th graders were investigating how direct sunlight vs. indirect sunlight affects earth. This way they could learn more about our seasons and length of daylight during the year. 
The 5th graders are working on their Growth Mindset Poster. They all said that you should "Have a growth mindset, not a fixed mindset. You are most likely to succeed in life." 
Sometimes it is nice to get outside to learn. The 8th graders are tracking the movement of shadows while we learn about our day/night cycle of earth! 

5th and 8th Grade MEA Science Testing

The next 3 days the 5th and 8th graders will be taking their Science MEA test. Each test is no more than 45 minutes long. It is important they are in school each day and rested!! 

6 - 8 Earth Science

The 6th to 8th graders are beginning today their Earth in Space unit. As part of this unit, they will be learning about what causes the day/night cycle, seasons, moon phases, and the year. Every night, the students are to look outside and shade in on their paper what the moon looks like. This should only take about 5 minutes to use. If they are unable to see the moon, I have provided a website for them to use. This is due at the start of class each day. We will use the information we gather in our unit in a few weeks. 

The 4th/5th graders took a trip to UMM to learn about careers and to tour the campus! They will begin working on their career project after vacation.
