As a product of the Union City school system myself I decided to give back to the community and in part my knowledge onto future generations. I have been a full time teacher for the past 4 years now. Prior to that I was a substitute teacher for an additional 2 years. Aside from teaching I am also the Assistant Coach for the UCHS Girls Swim Team, since I began coaching the girls swim team has become county champions for 3 years in a row. We are hoping for next year to be our fantastic fourth.

Classroom Procedures and Policies

Students in 2nd grade and upwards are required to have a separate science notebook. Also, all my classes are registered on Classdojo. I use Classdojo to keep track of the student’s attendance and behavior. At the end of the marking period I add there total points to a portion of their grade. If you have not received an invitation please email me and I will send one to you.


With the addition of the new science lab comes the addition of a few new classroom policies. If any student is being disrespectful and/or not following lab safety precautions that student will be placed in a brief time out. For restroom use only 2 students are allowed out of the room at one time. 

If you have not already please sign up for to see how your child is behaving during science. If you need a parental code please email me and I will send you one.
