Degrees and Certifications:
What is something I have in common with my 8th-grade students? Aside from a fantastic sense of humor, I also attended New Albany Middle School. After graduating from NAHS in 1987, I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature from Otterbein University and a Master’s of Curriculum Instruction from Ashland University, where I earned a Gifted Endorsement. Along with teaching ELA 8+, I share the 7-12 Gifted Coordinator position with Mrs. Woodmansee.
During my teaching career, I have enjoyed teaching 6th - 9th grades, as well as Gifted Intervention. I have coached a variety of teams, from FLL to cheerleading. I am excited to be coaching 8th Grade Power of the Pen, again. I look forward to working with our creative writers.
When I am not teaching, you can find me hanging out with my family on a ball field or on a boat. Needless to say, my two sons keep me very busy. You have probably seen us at Bevelhymer Park or Eagles Pizza! As much as I love summer, I am happy for school to start. It is going to be a great year!
