Degrees and Certifications:
Here at the New Albany Intermediate, I am a fifth grade ELA and social studies teacher. Five years at The Ohio State University gave me a master’s degree in education; that master’s degree gave me my job here, and as I begin my 15th year in fifth grade, I am given another opportunity to help young readers invesigate text and young writers find their voice. My goal is always to engage and inspire. I’m ready for an exciting year of teaching and learning even more with all of you!
At home, I am a wife to Zach, a mom to Mariska, Nadia, and Pippa, and a newly self-proclaimed master crockpot chef. As a family, we look forward to the everyday bustle that comes with work, school and sports, but we relish our holiday and vacation time together when life slows down and we can experience new adventures together. My personal favorite moments are those when I laugh and smile, and thankfully those come often.
