Welcome to our kindergarten classroom.  I am so excited about this school year.  I love children, and I especially like teaching kindergarten because it is the beginning of a whole new world of learning for students in a formal setting.  If I can make learning fun and instill in my students a love of learning, then I have given them the tools they need to be successful in the rest of their formal educational experiences.  I believe in inspiring my students to become caring, confident, and creative life-long learners who can successfully meet life’s challenges.  I am also very dedicated to providing a positive, loving environment in which learning can be fun and enjoyable for all of my students.

This is my 20th year teaching kindergarten.  I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Lee University in 1998 and my Master’s Degree from Lincoln Memorial University in 2010.  I am married to Scott Criddle, who is a Cleveland City Police Officer.  We have two children, Katelyn and Brian.  We also have a Miniature Dachshund named Pixie and a cat named Mittens.                           

I love my job and look forward to working with the children each day. All of my students are very special to me.  I know we are going to have a great year!
