Hello Creekside family!! The 2017-2018 will be my fifth year of teaching. I've previously taught two years in third grade and this will be my third year in first grade. I absolutely love teaching the young ones and helping shape their little minds. I graduated in December 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Western Kentucky University. In May 2015, I earned my Master's Degree in Literacy Specialist from the University of the Cumberlands. I am happily married to Anthony, who is employeed at Nolin RECC. We currently live in Elizabethtown with our son, Graham (1 year old in November 2017), and our two dogs, Harley and Hazel. I'm a huge Kentucky Wildcats fan and love going to football games and tailgating with my family in the fall. I also enjoy kayaking in the summer, reading books, watching movies, and going on vacations!

You can find homework in the agenda pocket and assignment written by your child on the appropriate day. There will only be homework on Monday-Thursday nights. Homework can include items such as: writing spelling words, reading baggie books, math worksheets, reading worksheets, etc. When your child has a baggie book for homework, please listen to your child read their book and then please sign the reading log and return in the agenda.
Our school day begins at 7:40a.m. and ends at 2:20p.m. Attendance is very important to the success of your student’s experiences. Please have your child to school each day and on time. In order for your child to be prepared to start their day, they should be here NO later than 7:30 each day to eat breakfast. If your student is absent, please send a note to school on the following school day.
Report cards will be sent home four times during the school year as scheduled by the school.
Your student will have an agenda (planner) to correspond back and forth with each night. Please check and sign agendas every night! The agenda is used as a means of communication between home and school. If a student loses their agenda, it is $6.00 to replace the agenda. Feel free to send notes when questions arise.
Our classroom will go to lunch from 10:50– 11:15 a.m. each day. Our special time is from 11:20-12:05. Please make sure your child has on proper shoes to enjoy activities in the gym on P.E. days. Your student will also be given the opportunity to visit art, music, and the library during special time.
