Welcome to kindergarten! This is my 25th year teaching at Hillside School. I started teaching in first grade and have spent the past 18 years in kindergarten. It is a warm and loving place to be! I have 3 children of my own who have all been part of the Allendale School District.  I feel very fortunate to both work and live in the town of Allendale. It is always a pleasure to see my students outside of school and in the community! I believe that kindergarten should be developmentally appropriate and have a balance between academic rigor , social development  and play. I love watching and teaching my young students become readers, writers and problem solvers.
