Degrees and Certifications:
I am SO excited to be teaching 1st Grade at Hickory Ridge!
This is my 2nd year in First Grade. I was previously the Reading Intervention Teacher at Hickory Ridge. I graduated from Cleveland State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and I am certified to teach grades 1-8. I also have a concentration in Language Arts and obtained my K-12 Reading Endorsement from Bowling Green State University. I am certified to teach Reading in grades K-12.
Just a little about me :) I am married to my husband Rob who is a Brunswick Hills Firefighter and have 3 children. My oldest son Robby graduated from Brunswick High School in 2017 and is majoring in Aeronautics Flight Technology at Kent State University to pursue his dream of becoming a pilot. He has already earned his Private Pilot License, and I have even gotten to fly with him as my pilot! My son Stevie graduated from Brunswick High School in 2019 and is continuing classes at Tri C in the fall in the Firefighter/Paramedic program, and my daughter Jenni is a senior at Brunswick High School and is also taking classes at Tri C in hopes of graduating high school with both her High School Diploma and her Associates Degree. All 3 of my kids went to Hickory Ridge for their elementary years!
In my spare time I love hanging out with my family, reading, cheering on Cleveland/Ohio sports teams (O-H!), watching movies, traveling and walking my dog Leia.
I LOVE teaching and I am looking forward to a terrific year with my fantastic first graders!!
