Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome back to the 2021-2022 School Year! I am so excited to get this year started and help to create a love for Physical Activity and Lifetime Wellness, as one of your New Albany Primary School Wellness Teachers!
This will be my 10th year teaching Wellness, with this being my 3rd year at the New Albany Primary School. Prior to working in New Albany, I taught K-12 Health and Physical Education in Tampa Bay, Florida and was recognized as a Rookie PE Teacher of the Year. I have spent a great deal of my teaching profession working on various Curriculum and Assessment Development Teams which has led me to pursue my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction at Ohio University. This is also where I completed my Bachelor's of Physical Education Program.
As a graduate of New Albany Plain Local Schools, in 2006, I have developed a strong connection to our community. Every day, I look for ways to ensure that each and every student in our school walks away with a feeling of success and enjoyment, by creating a personalized learning experience in Wellness. My goal is to provide our students with the confidence and motivation to create a plan for Lifelong Wellness and to apply that plan to their daily lives.
Outside of being a teacher, I love spending time with my husband as well as my children. We enjoy visiting family in Florida as well as going to the zoo, parks, going swimming, and attending different sporting events. I am sure I will see some of you at our local sporting events and I look forward to working with each of you this year!
