Welcome to my web site!

This site has been created as a resource tool for students and parents. I also post some information about my family so my family and friends across the country can visit. Students and parents can visit my homepage to find out anything they’d like about our classroom. For example, often times it is hard to visit our classroom to see the exciting activities, so through the Internet, I can bring the excitement to you!

And Now ... About the Teacher...

I was born in ... Ha. Just kidding. But, if you'd like to know more about what I've been doing (professionally) for the past few years, check out my Committees and Accomplishments page.

I will begin my 24th year of teaching in August, 2016. For the first six years of my career I taught fourth grade at Bissell Elementary School (Hall of Fame School) in Twinsburg, Ohio. I taught third grade at the same building for 3 years. I began teaching 3rd grade at Leighton Elementary (Hall of Fame School), in Aurora, Ohio in the Fall of 2002. After teaching 10 years in 3rd grade in Aurora, I decided it was time for another change so I requested a position in 2nd grade! My wish was granted and I am so very glad that I have joined the Craddock team!

I completed my undergraduate studies at Hiram College. After my first year of teaching fourth grade, I began my graduate studies at Cleveland State University. I earned a Master’s Degree in Elementary Administration in the summer of 1996. On November 30, 2000, I achieved National Board Certification! In 2005, I earned a second Master's Degree in Special Education - Gifted and Talented.

I live in Twinsburg, Ohio with my wonderful husband Dan and our two boys - Brian ~ who will be 19 years old. He will be attending Kent State University in the Fall!  David is 16 years old and will be a Sophomore in high school! He was a lifeguard at Wild Water Kingdom! Our daughter Julia will be 13 and will be in 7th grade! She is hoping to become a member of the junior high show choir! Dibbles, our Fur Kid maltipoo,is now 6 years old! He was 9 weeks old and 1 pound when we got him on July 9, 2010. We went all the way to Cincinnati, Ohio for him! He is so --- so special to us. We are lucky to have him because Mr. Stauffer is highly allergic to dogs. He sneezes a lot but hangs in there!
