Welcome to my class. I am so very happy to have the opportunity to help your child on his/her educational journey at Declo Elementary. Teaching fifth grade is an adventure filled with new experiences. It is a time when children really begin to develop who they are academically, as well as personally. When I think of Declo I think of that small town feel where everyone knows each other, and works together to be the best they can be. This year marks my 23rd year teaching at Declo, and I was a Para here for several years prior. I love my hometown, and want nothing but the best for my students, and community. My door is always open so stop in and say hi.
