A little about myself. This will be my 16th year as an educator. I have taught both high school and middle school but middle school is where my heart is.
I grew up in a small town in northern Michigan and then attended Saginaw Valley State University for my bachelor's. I moved to west Michigan after graduation and started my teaching career. I then attended GVSU to earn my Master's in middle school education. I have been married for 12 years to my husband Nate. We have two children, Caleb who is 10 and Sophia who is 7. They are in 5th and 2nd grade this year. We are a camping family and spend our summer from one camping trip to another. During the school year we are busy with First Lego League, gymnastics, OM, basketball, Girl Scouts, baseball and softball.
