 Welcome to the First Grade Team!

In first grade we are READERS, WRITERS, MATHEMATICIANS, SCIENTISTS and so much more. We will practice life skills that will help us to be kind, thoughtful, and curious learners and friends. In between all of our learning we play on Hawk Zone, participate in Mileage Club with our other first grade friends, and help out around Mary Hogan School. First grade is an adventure in learning and building relationships.



MY HOMETOWN:  I grew up on Lake Bomoseen in Castleton, Vermont.

MY EDUCATION: After graduating from Fairhaven Union High School, I attended Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York, the University of Central Florida and the College of Saint Joseph as I worked on my specialized degree in Education.

MY CAREER: When I was young I spent time as a server at Fire and Ice Restaurant. I have taught English to middle school students at Christ the King School, Kindergarten, First and Second grades here at MHS. When I am not teaching I am coaching basketball and running.

OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL: I am the luckiest mom in the world, having two outstanding daughters, two crazy dogs named Maggie and Milo and the care and support of my terrific husband. I uniquely appreciate my average-size family, as I am the youngest of 8 siblings! I love to travel and have been all over the United States and Europe. One of my favorite places on Earth (so far) is the Outer Banks in NC. I am an active in Yoga, which allows me to keep in shape so I can enjoy the outdoors.


MY FAVORITE SUBJECT IN SCHOOL WAS:  (I loved-loved-loved) Reading and Writing.
