Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to first grade!! I am looking forward to this year at the Primary School!
I was born in Ashland, Ohio and attended Bowling Green State University to become a teacher. I moved to Columbus shortly after I earned my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and two master’s degrees. One master’s degree is in Reading Education and the other master’s degree is in Gifted Education. For the first grade team, I coordinate a special fundraiser to support the Columbus Zoo’s Partners In Conservation (PIC) program every spring. I have been a first grade teacher in New Albany for the past thirteen years. This will be my fourteenth year at New Albany.
Outside of school, I stay busy with my family. My husband and I enjoy our two year old son, Chancellor. During the summer, Chancellor and I were busy with local Columbus attractions. We went to the Columbus Zoo, COSI, Legoland, and a local festival. We also visited the pool and gymnastics classes almost weekly. We took a short family vacation to the beach at Cedar Point. Chancellor enjoyed playing on the beach and trying out Snoopy Land. We can’t wait for him to grow a few more inches so he can ride roller coasters. We look forward to continuing to watch him grow and learn!
