Study Guide




I am beginning my 16th year of teaching laugh.  This is my second year in 6th grade and it is my first year at GMS. I taught one year at Camp Ernst Middle and 14 years at Stephens Elementary.  13 of those years were spent teaching math to fifth graders.  My last year at Stephens, I was the RtI math instructor for Kindergarten through 5th.  I am married and have one son named Joshua James.  He  is 13 and in the 8th grade here at Gray MIddle School. I enjoy camping on weekends and throughout the summer.  Thank you to all the students, parents and staff for being so welcoming, I love it here at GMS!
