I am so excited about beginning my 28th year of teaching with your children.  I am looking forward to working with you and helping your children reach their fullest potential this year.  I am living my dream each and every day that I am allowed to come to school to make a positive difference in the world we live in, both now and in the future.  

I started my teaching career in 1994 after graduating from Columbia College with a degree in Elementary Education.  I earned a masters degree in Divergent Learning from Columbia College in 2001.  I completed another masters degree in Administration and Supervision in 2017.  I added Early Childhood certification to my certificate in 2021 and Gifted and Talented endorsement in 2017.  I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 6th grades as well as served as a math coach and interventionist. I have also served as a reading interventionist.

In my free time, I love to spend time with my family.  We enjoy church activities, cooking, traveling and playing games together.  We are a blended family.  We have 4 children.  Three of them are grown and gone.  They live in Michigan, Florida and North Carolina.  We have one high schooler still at home.
