A little about myself. This will be my 17th 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 13 years to my husband Nate. We have two children, Caleb who is 11 and Sophia who is 8. They are in 6th and 3rd 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, OM, basketball, volleyball, baseball and softball.
