Ira Cross Elementary

2nd Grade

15 Years of Experience


My favorite thing about teaching are the light bulb moments when students finally understand and are so excited to the point where they want to learn more. I enjoy being able to reach students who struggle and feel no one cares. Each time I reach their heart, it gets easier to reach their mind.

Welcome to Ira Cross Jr. Elementary!
