I am so happy to be at Hop Brook Elementary School as a second grade teacher.  I started teaching elementary school at Maple Hill in 1999.  I have also taught at Prospect Street School and now my home is at Hop Brook.  I have taught 4th grade, 1st grade, and 2nd grade.  For the last three years it was my pleasure to be the Reading Specialist at Hop Brook School where I had the opportunity to work with many Hop Brook students in the Reading Room.  I am very excited to be back in the classroom this year!  I live in Naugatuck with my amazing family, my husband Chris and my two sons, Spencer and Kellen.
