Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the new school year, Eagles!
I am originally from Tiffin, Ohio, and sixteen years ago, I moved to Columbus to begin my teaching career. (During my first five years at New Albany, you might have known me as Miss Lutz.) Since 2003, I have taught eleven years of first grade, one year of Kindergarten, and this year will be my fourth year in Reading Intervention.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Heidelberg College (now Heidelberg University) in Tiffin, Ohio with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education (Pre-K-3) in 2003. In May 2007, I completed my program at the Ashland University branch in Columbus and graduated with my Master’s degree in Literacy.
In August 2008, my husband, Lou, and I were married. We have a six year old daughter, Lily and a two year old son, Brooks. It has been an amazing summer together watching them grow! Our family also enjoys cheering on the Buckeyes, the Cavs and the Columbus Crew, visiting the Columbus Zoo and spending time with our family and friends.
