Degrees and Certifications:
I am an Ann Arbor native, and absolutely love teaching in the district that I attended as a student! I completed my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at Michigan State University. After graduating I taught fifth grade in Novi, followed by a couple of years teaching in Ann Arbor. Next, I spent eight years teaching middle school science in Chicago while completing my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. When I moved back to Michigan, I spent one year teaching middle school science in Farmington Hills. This will be my third year as a Lawton Leopard, and I'm so excited to be teaching 4th grade!
One of my favorite books is The One and Only Ivan because I love animals, and enjoy reading stories that are told from the perspective of animal characters.
My favorite subject when I was in elementary school was science! I love nature/outdoors, animals, ecosystems, experiments, and problem solving. I also love learning about new discoveries!
