About Me

This will be my 20th year of teaching and 16th 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 seventh year teaching fourth grade. I will be teaming with Mrs. Drees (SS/Science) and Mrs. Rike (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."
I am married to my husband, Shon. We reside in Milford, have a 8 year old son named Chase, a 6 1/2 year old daughter named Lola, and a 11 year old dog named Reese. 
Some of my favorites: 
Candy--Sour Patch Kids, Reese Cups
Store--Amazon, Target
School Supply--Sharpie markers, Papermate fine point pens
Season--Fall and Summer
Sports Teams--Reds, Bengals, Ohio State, UC
