Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to first grade! I am very excited about this year. I have many exciting things to share with you and can’t wait for us to learn and grow together. Let me tell you a little bit about myself.
This is my twelfth year teaching in New Albany. I taught second grade for nine years and I am thrilled to be teaching first grade again for the third year. I attended The Ohio State University where I majored in Family Relations and Human Development. I went on to receive my Master of Education degree and Reading Endorsement from there as well. Throughout my career, I have continued to take coursework to stay up to date on the best practices in education.
My husband and I have two daughters who attend New Albany Schools. Faith is in seventh grade and Marissa is in sixth grade. I enjoyed my summer by watching MANY softball games, visiting with family from out of town, and spending time with friends. My hobbies include traveling, reading, and cooking.
The most exciting part of of teaching first grade is watching the tremendous amount of growth that each students makes during the year. I look forward to taking this journey with you!
