Welcome to William J. Butler School. I am excited to have you as part of my class. I received both my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Olivet Nazarene University. I have an additional master's degree as a Reading Specialist from Olivet Nazarene University. I am a 2nd grade teacher who loves her job! I am a wife, mother and avid reader. I love to try new things in my classroom and create lessons that inspire my students to become life long learners. When I am not in the classroom, you find me playing outside with my children or curled up with a good book. I can't wait for an exciting new school year to begin! Welcome to 2nd grade!
