Degrees and Certifications:
I attended Hiram College where I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in Elementary Education and Special Education K-12. I earned my Master’s Degree from Webster University. I completed a post graduate endorsement in Reading from Ohio Dominican and have completed training in both Orton-Gillingham and Structured Teaching.
I began my career teaching in high school and middle school special education. I also taught Fifth grade in Missouri. After taking some time away from teaching to stay home with my children, I joined New Albany as an educational assistant in 2012. In 2016, I was hired as the Cross Categorical Teacher for students in the Intermediate Grades.
I currently live in New Albany with Allen, my husband, and our four children. Andrew is 17 and is a Junior at NAHS. Christopher, 8th grade, and Kaytlin, 7th grade, both attend NAMS. My oldest son, David is a Junior at the University of Dayton. When I’m not at school, you’ll find me enjoying time with my family, reading, singing with The Voices of Ohio, or volunteering for Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita Support, Inc.
