Degrees and Certifications:
I just completed my 13th year of teaching in Brunswick! I taught second grade at Kidder my first four years. I took three years off from teaching to stay home with my young children. When I returned to teaching I joined the Memorial Team. I taught kindergarten for one year and this will be my 9th year teaching 2nd grade at Memorial.
I graduated from Kent State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I am certified to teach children birth through 3rd grade. I also completed a Master's Degree in Reading from Baldwin Wallace. I am certified to teach children reading K-12.
I have been married to my wonderful husband for seventeen years and have three beautiful children: Alex 15 years old, Abbey 12 years old, and Grace 10 years old. Alex is a sophomore at Brunswick High School and enjoys baseball and golf. Abbey is a seventh grader at Visintainer and her interests are dance and cooking. Grace is a fifth grader at Memorial and enjoys softball and gymnastics. I relish spending time with family and friends, running, and walking our family dog, Baxter.
I am excited to be your child's Language Arts Teacher! I know we are going to have a great year reading and writing together!
