Welcome to First Grade! I am excited for a new year of fun and learning. This is my second year here at Oakview as a first grade teacher. Prior to my time at Oakview I taught reading at Prass Elementary and Beavertown Elementary. I have taught preschool, first, second, and third grade in other school districts before finally settling in Kettering where I now live with my family. I have two children in the Kettering School district. I enjoy reading, gardening, and creating diy projects for my home and classroom. I spend a lot of time at sporting events watching my kids participate and when I am home we watch a lot of sports on TV. We are huge Buckeye and Firebird fans! Get ready for a great school year here at Oakview!
