This is my 8th year of teaching. Six of these years have been teaching science and language arts. I spent seven years teaching 5th grade (which I loved!) Now, I am the junior high literacy teacher!
I am a very high energy, enthusiastic teacher who tries to incorporate technology and interactive lessons into my plans (and I occasionally dress up like a mad scientist!) I like a lot of hands-on activity and active discussion with my students. I love creating my own materials that are tailored to the standards that I teach.

I have a very spoiled bulldog named Oliver. My husband and I enjoy cheering on the Ohio State Buckeyes and trying out restaurants in the area (my favorite is Mexican food!). I also love to write and read.
