Welcome Back to School!

After being in a much larger school and district, I'm excited to come to Botelle and getting to know all the students and families here! I am also excited to be teaching in a multi-age classroom, and helping my students get ready for Middle School by helping them take ownership of their learning. My favorite subject to teach is Social Studies, and I'm always looking for ways to connect the SS content knowledge into other subject areas. I'm so happy to be a part of this family!

Botelle serves students in grades pre-kindergarten through 6 in Norfolk, Connecticut. All students are accepted, appreciated, nurtured and challenged in a safe, caring learning community. Warm relationships are the foundation on which learning is built.

Students achieve at high levels in a multiage environment and remain with the same teacher for two years. This allows our staff to know each child as a learner and person and tailor instruction to their needs and interests. The curriculum is based on the Connecticut Core Standards and students work on rigorous, real-life tasks.

Students are partners in the learning process and develop the skills to be self-directed, engaged learners. They develop the knowledge, skills, strategies and desire needed for life-long learning which supports the Norfolk Public School mission “ educate all students to be competent, confident, thoughtful, responsible, and contributing members of society.”
