About Me
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  Thank you for visiting my class page.  I am thrilled to welcome you and your child to fourth grade. I have been a teacher at Valley View School since 1993. I reside in Lebanon Township with my husband and two children.  This year will be full of learning, adventure, and fun! The fourth grade team includes Stephanie Pollock, Laura Lang, Marina Viteri, & Morgan Huizenga. The fourth grade year is both fun and challenging.  It is my desire for your child to learn and grow to the best of their abilities.  Students will be exposed to a wide range of topics and develop many new skills that will help them transition to middle school. I am looking forward to sharing a wonderful fourth grade year together!
