Welcome back to a new school year! I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you a few things about myself. I reside in Minster with my husband, Scott, and our three children, Nathan, Kayla, and Emily. We also have a Shih Tzu dog named Gizmo. Needless to say, my children keep me busy with attending their activities and sporting events! As a family we enjoy boating and camping. In my free time, I love to read.
I graduated from Marion Local in 1989. Following graduation, I attended Bowling Green State University and earned my Bachelor of Science degree in special education in 1993. In 1998, I earned my Master’s degree in elementary education from The Ohio State University.
I have been teaching for 22 years. I taught thirteen years as a special education teacher. I began my teaching career at Wapakoneta City Schools as the third grade special education teacher. I left Wapakoneta City Schools in 1996 to teach at New Knoxville School for two years as the learning disabilities teacher for grades 1-6. In 1998, I began teaching at Minster Elementary as the intervention specialist for grades 1-3. Eventually, I felt I was ready for a change, so I accepted a position as a third grade teacher in 2008.
I thoroughly enjoy teaching third graders and I am excited to begin the new school year with you.
