This is my ninth year of teaching and each year I love my job even more! This year is my 2nd year teaching 2nd grade and I am loving the fresh perspective these little ones give to life!

I have experienced my fair share of good and bad teachers. I was greatly inspired by my high school choir teacher, who went above and beyond her teaching duties to make sure I was at school, performed to her expectations, and graduated. I aspire to be like her and to be the opposite of those teachers who I felt gave me a negative perspective on teaching and school.
I am married to the love of my life. We have two teenage boys, a small dog who thinks she is our baby, and a kitty cat who is old, cranky, and makes me sneeze! Wouldn't have my life any other way! :-)
