I grew up in Indiana, graduated from Portage High School in 1990, attended Ball State
University in Muncie Indiana and graduated from there in 1995. I hold a dual degree in
elementary education and special education. This is my eighth year teaching.
I really enjoy teaching 3rd grade because 8 years olds are very eager to learn and they
find wonder and excitement in all things. Whether we are visiting distant planets in
our solar system or looking into the past at Anthony and Cleopatra we always find fun
and creative ways to learn about the world in which we live.
