Dear Families,


Welcome to Room 309! Your Wilkinson Gardens Team and I couldn’t be more excited to help your child succeed this year. Please know that the team has been working hard over the summer so that your child transitions smoothly back to school. Our smaller class sizes will Ms. Murrell and I to provide the safest environment possible!


Let me assure you that I have been a Highly Qualified Teacher, graduating in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science in Special and Elementary Education.  For the last 20 years, Special Education teaching has been my passion.  Starting at the high school level, I transferred to the elementary level to teacher my students the skills and know-how to be the most successful scholar they can be.   


On a personal note, my passion extends to my children and grandchild.  When not with them, I love to read and take care of my animals; my dog, Harley Blu; my cat, Tabby Blu, and finally my two guinea pigs, Shiloh Blu and Cupid Blu.


I look forward to working with not only the students, but the parents as well to make this the most successful year ever.
