I was born and raised in Ohio, earning my Bachelors in Special Education and Masters in Reading from Bowling Green State University. I then moved to Summerville in 2013. This is my ninth year teaching. For my first four years of teaching, I was here at WMES teaching resource. Then, I joined DD2 for three years where I taught resource and I received the endorsement for teaching The Gifted and Talented Learners. However, there is no place like home, I can came back! This year, I am putting my Masters Degree to work as the Literacy Coach. My family includes my husband, Greg, and our three and a half year old daughter, Mia. Once the school day is over, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to animal sanctuaries and zoos and seeing live RiverDogs and Stingrays games! Some of my favorite things are the color pink, singing along with and listening to pop and Christian music, drinking sweet tea on my front porch while snacking on sweet and salty treats.
