About Me

This will be my 19th year of teaching and 15th year in Goshen Local Schools. My first four years were spent teaching Kindergarten at a private Montessori-based preschool. In 2007, I made the decision to change to middle school. I taught eighth grade Language Arts for six years. Then, I moved to Spaulding Elementary School and taught third grade Language Arts for three years, and this will be my sixth year teaching fourth grade. 

I am married to my husband, Shon. We reside in Milford, have a 7 year old son named Chase, a 5 1/2 year old daughter named Lola, and a 10 year old dog named Reese. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family and friends. I grew up playing sports and enjoy playing softball.

I will be teaming with Mrs. Drees (SS/Science) and Ms. Barlow (Math). I have a quote on my classroom door to push students toward success: "Imagine with all your mind, Believe with all your heart, Achieve with all your might."
