Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 1st grade! I am so excited for a fun-filled year together! This will be my 10th year teaching 1st grade in New Albany. I truly love this age group-- 1st graders are so eager, curious, enthusiastic, and funny!
I graduated from The Ohio State University twice, once with my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education and then again with a Master’s degree in education. I am a proud Buckeye through and through! Working with young learners has always been a passion of mine. I always knew that my calling in life was to be a teacher and to help children’s passions and interests grow in and outside of the classroom. I love the learning that takes place and each year I am constantly amazed at how much we all learn from each other!
A little more about me-- I grew up in Findlay, Ohio where I met my husband, Kyle. We have two daughters, Isla and Lucy. We love to cook & bake, spend time outdoors visiting local parks, and going to farmer's markets. We also have an ornery black cat named Harmony!
I’m looking forward to a fantastic year together in 1st grade!
