Hello! Welcome back to another great school year! I am very excited to be a part of the Amy Belle staff and look forward to getting to know all of you over the course of the school year! I began my career as a fourth grade teacher and taught at Shady Lane Elementary for 11 years. The past two years I was the associate principal at Ben Franklin Elementary School, which is a 4k-5th grade building. I live in Menomonee Falls with my husband, two children and new puppy! I love working in an elementary school setting and am enjoying getting to know the students and families at Amy Belle!
I feel that all students have the ability to learn and grow throughout a school year. The staff at Amy Belle has an amazing opportunity to build a foundation of learning with academics and with social and emotional skills. By creating clear expectations around learning outcomes and behavior and engaging them in learning experiences, we can set students on the path to be life-long learners.
I truly feel that a school is an extended family, and I am very happy to be a part of the Amy Belle family! I hope that the staff, students and families have had a smooth transition back to school!
