Teaching kindergarten has been one of the most fulfilling and enjoyable things I have ever done in my life and for the last 23 years of teaching, I have spent my time either with kindergarten students or providing reading intervention for First and Second grade students. I start my 24th year of teaching this Fall of 2019 and the excitement of a new school year still confirms my love of teaching!
 
I was born and raised in Mount Vernon and I attended kindergarten through twelfth grade in this very district. I attended The Ohio State University to receive my degree in Education and later received training to become a Reading Recovery teacher specializing in intense reading intervention in First grade students struggling in the area of reading and writing. 
 
In my free time I love working in our yard designing and landscaping our outdoor space, and hanging out with our Golden Retriever Luna and out cat Milo.  I love to cook and follow my children everywhere to see their band concerts, soccer games and track meets! 
 
My family and I reside in Mount Vernon.  My husband Scott and I have three children, Madison who lives and works in Los Angeles, Mia who attends The Ohio State University and is a member of TBDBITL! Our son Jack, who  will be a freshman at MVHS and plays soccer, runs track and pole vaults.   I have been teaching at Twin Oak since it's opening in March 2005 and before that I have taught at Elmwood, West Side, Dan Emmett Elementary and East Knox Elementary. It is my absolute pleasure and passion to help young learners emerge into independence and discovery in their learning.  I'm looking forward to another great school year!
