Welcome to 3rd grade! I have been teaching elementary school for 24 years! My teaching career began when I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Illinois Wesleyan University. I later earned a Master of Education from Xavier University as a Reading Specialist, and a Master of Arts in Instructional Leadership from Northern Kentucky University.
I love teaching 3rd grade! Over the years, I have taught in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classrooms, as well as Computer Lab Technology and Math Intervention. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors, reading, running, and doing yoga.
With my husband, two children, and two dogs, I live in Cincinnati, Ohio. My oldest daughter attends Sinclair Community College in Dayton. She is majoring in Middle School Education and playing softball for the Tartans. My youngest daughter is a Visual Arts major at The School for Creative and Performing Arts in Cincinnati. My husband runs our daycare business in Milford. We have a very busy, but exciting life!
