Degrees and Certifications:
As an educator, my passion lies in nurturing creativity and encouraging my students to take risks, empowering them to become resourceful problem solvers. With over 27 years of experience in teaching, I've worked with a variety of grade levels, from 2nd graders to Algebra I students, and have worked with struggling readers and mathematicians to provide targeted support. Additionally, I have served as an instructional coach, working alongside fellow educators to enhance instruction.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Otterbein College and a Master of Education in Literacy, Curriculum, and Instruction from Ashland University. To further enhance my skills, I've also participated in the Ohio State University Math Coaching Program.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending quality time with my family. I am very grateful for my two children, Audrey and Jake. Audrey just finished her degree at Ohio University and is excited to start her career at Abercrombie. Jake is collaborating with his father to build the family business, Wall Force. Together, we love to travel and indulge our fur babies: Maddie and Oliver.
I look forward to continuing my journey as an educator, inspiring my students to explore new horizons and learn with enthusiasm!
