Hello Gems,

    My name is Miss Welch and I am so excited to be returning to the gems for my second year! I am orginally from New Hampshire which is waayyyy up north. I taught first grade for two years and now I will be teaching special education for another year here at Diamond Lakes. I fully believe everyone should have a chance to learn in a way they are comfortable and happy. I love exploring and adventuring in learning and hope to help others love it too. 

    A little about me. I love running, though it is a little bit hotter here than in New Hampshire so I can't run outside as much. I have done a race every month since March of 2019. I love reading also. Some of my favorite authors are Rick Riordan, John Flanagan, and Mo Willems. I enjoy haning out with my friends and family. In my down time I like to watch Bob Ross and try new recipes. Please feel free to email me any time with questions. My door (physical or virtual) is always open!


    We are going to have a great year!

    We have no limits to our world. We're only limited by our imagination.
