Hello Families, I am one of your students classroom teachers. This will be my thirteenth year as part of the Thurston community. Every year it just seems to get better and I am sure this year will be no different. I am a graduate from Eastern Michigan University with a degree in Elementary Education. I am certified K-5 and hold an Early Childhood Education endorsement. I have had the pleasure to work with this age group teaching preschool for over 15 years. Preschool is my favorite age group to work with; I love being part of all the joy of learning and growth that preschooler's have. Every year I look forward to getting to know all of my preschooler's and their family's better, we like to create a preschool family atmosphere.
Here are a few fun facts about me. I am a Michigan native and grew up not far from here, I currently live in Ann Arbor with my husband, and my two children. My son Jake is 24, and my daughter Bethany is 21, she is a senior at North Park University in Chicago, where she is a member of their volleyball team. I have one dog named Shaggy and my son has a dog named Jade. My favorite food is Chocolate Chip Cookies, my favorite color is yellow, my favorite animal is a giraffe, and my favorite season is summer. Since my daughter is a volleyball player, my favorite sport is of course volleyball, but I also like to watch football, I don't like scary movies they give me bad dreams, I like movies with happy endings and comedy's. My favorite part of preschool is learning with the class; singing, playing games and reading stories in silly voices.
