I am so proud and honored to be part of the Hastings community. I am looking forward to making my acquaintance with everyone and everything that makes this community so special. The author Charles Dickens drew an accurate description of a child’s Middle School years as, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was an age of foolishness…” That sums it up beautifully and right on target! But I wouldn’t want to work with any other age group!
I have been an educator for 19 years and have the pleasure of working with students from grades 6-12. Majority of my teaching experience has been working with high school students (9-12), but for the past 7 years I have been exclusively working with middle school students. My passion is working with Middle School students. It is an age where students are coming into their own individuality and an age where they need their school and home family the most to support them on their journey.
