Hello Fifth Graders!
I am so excited to be working with all of you this school year! This will be my second year teaching fifth grade at Allen Creek. Two years ago I moved to the Rochester area from New York City where I lived and taught for 12 years. I love my new home in Western New York, especially being so close to so many lakes, mountains, and parks. I live with my (almost) 2 year old daughter Josie, my husband Mr. Dryden (who is also a teacher!) and my two cats, Vinca and Ruby.
Some other fun facts about me are that I love plants and you will probably see a lot in our classroom this year! I love to cook delicious italian food, especially spaghetti! In my free time you can usually find me at the Rochester Public Market shopping for vegetables to cook with or going on long walks and hikes with my family. I look forward to getting to know some fun facts about you this school year!
