Educating the Whole Child.

Ponderosa Pine Tree Classroom

5th grade

5th grade is a great place to be. Students dive deep into compelling topics through collaboration and research. Teachers specialize so students learn from math, science, and ELA experts. Students focus on research and writing informational and narrative text. Students learn to be critical thinkers through productive struggle and discourse in math. Students engage in making authentic products in math, science, and language arts.

I was born and raised in Germany and am of Italian nationalaty. I became an American citizen 22 years ago. I have received my bachelor's degree in German and Elementary Teaching from Weber State University and obtained a dual license.    

I have been married for 33 years and have three boys and a dog. I enjoy going on vacation with my family, camping, hiking, bike riding, cooking, and baking. I love nature and animals.


I have been at Greenwood for 4 years and am very excited to be part of Greenwood Charter School. I believe in healthy lifestyles as Greenwood inspires. I also think that every student has the potential of the highest academic achievements. 

I enjoy being a teacher and helping each student to succeed in life.  


Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
