Can you believe we are over halfway through the school year? This year has flown by for me. I have seen so much growth in all of my students. I hope you have as well. Let's continue to work together to see your children soar!

Helpful reading comprehsnion questions after your child has read you a story:

Who are the characters from the story?

What is the setting? Where did the story take place?

Was there a problem in the story?

What was the solution to the problem?

What is the main idea of the story?

Why do you think the author wrote this story?

What did you like/dislike about the story?



Homework
Students have homework on most nights. They shouldn't have homework on Fridays unless they didn't complete something in class or are correcting a test. Please be sure to sign your student's reading log so they are able to turn it in to the classroom teacher. Also, if no formal homework assignment was given, please read and practice spelling words.


A Little Snapshot of Me

I am happy to say that this is my 13th year at Northwestern. I love every minute of my job and look forward to the start of every school year.

Education
I am a Kenton Ridge High School graduate. For college, I graduated from Urbana University in 1999 with a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education K-8. I received my master's degree in education with an emphasis in mild to moderate disabilities from Wright State University in 2005.

Family
I am a happily married mother of three. My oldest is Danielle, she is in fifth grade. I also have a set of twins, Noah and Leah who are in third grade here at Northwestern. We spent most days going to the park, library, pool, church events, the Clark County Fair and summer offerings in the city.
