I was born in Southwest lower Michigan. After graduating high school, I attended Central Michigan University (Fire up Chips!) where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Teaching with a science major/english minor. I then taught kindergarten and first grade close to home for three years.
In 2008, I married my best friend who moved me to this lovely side of the mitten. This is my tenth year at Barnard Elementary. My first year I taught kindergarten and I have been in second grade ever since.
In 2010 we were blessed with fraternal twins. We then welcomed another child in 2013. They are the joy of our lives!
In December 2015, I graduated with my Master’s in Early Childhood at Oakland University. I love learning!
When I am not at school, I enjoy being a mommy, spending time with friends and family, reading, taking walks and watching the Dallas Cowboys.
I love being an educator and am so happy that you have visited our site.
