Cup Of Pencils.pngHello!  Welcome to First Grade!  I am so lucky to have taught this grade for so many years (9 so far) as well as a couple of years in second grade.  I enjoy the excitement of this age and the large amount of growth I get to see them make throughout the year, both socially and academically.  I earned my BA in Elementary Education from Cornerstone University in Michigan, where I grew up, and my MA from Ferris State University.  I have an endorsement in Language Arts from the state of Michigan as well.

I am also married to a teacher at OHS, so we are even more blessed to have our holidays and vacations at the same time with our daughter.  We love to hike, fish, and play outside.  I also love to read, scrapbook and try my hand at new desserts!
