Welcome to second grade. I am so happy to have your child as a student this year. I am sure you will see tremendous growth both academically and physically with your son or daughter. I have been at Merton for sixteen years, six of them in fourth grade and ten in second. I completed my Master's In Education several years ago and I have been teaching for more than twenty five years all together. Merton is truly a great school to work in and I look forward to another challenging year ahead.
My husband Tim and I have three grown children. Our oldest son Jake is a commercial pilot and lives between CA and FL with our daughter-inlaw and our three grandchildren. Our youngest son Derek is married and he and his wife are both stationed at Fort Sam Houston, TX. Both Derek and his wife are in the dental field with Derek being a general dentist and our daughter-inlaw an orthodontist. Our youngest daughter Abbey has her doctorate in Physical Therapy and is married with a new son born in August. Lucky for Tim and me they live nearby so we get to at least see one of our four grandchildren often. Our family is constantly growing and changing keeping us all pretty busy. Besides spending as much time as possible with family, I enjoy spending summers at our cabin and being outside working in our yard, swimming, and walking. I also like to curl up with a good book when time permits.
