Have you had a great summer?  I sure hope so!  I have had a busy summer with my family.  Let me introduce them to you.  My husband Matt is a Firefighter/EMT for the Fairfax County Fire & Rescue Dept. in Virginia.  We have two sons, Collin (serving in the United States Marine Corps) and Harrison (in college), and two dogs named Will and Chael.  We live in Millersville and both my husband and I graduated from Penn Manor High School and Millersville University.  This will be my 28th year teaching at Hambright.

Are you ready for a super school year in our BEAUTIFUL building?  We are all still so excited to be in our building!  Fourth grade is a year full of fun and exciting activities!  This is a very important year because you are making the transition from a primary student to an intermediate student.  Your school responsibilities will grow, as well as your knowledge!  Be ready to have a great year!  See you soon!
