Hello! Welcome to my classroom! I am very excited to be your fourth grade teacher this year. This is my 18th year teaching for Goshen and my 23rd year teaching overall. I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Cincinnati in 1995.
I live in Maineville with my husband of 28 years and our three children. Our oldest is 24 and just graduated from Miami University. He works for Walnut Creek Ranch in Colerain. Our daughter graduated from Kings last year and is starting at Ashland University, studying Early Childhood Education. Our youngest son is 13 and a 8th grader over at Goshen Middle School. He is in the Drama Club and on the Wrestling Team. We also have 4 dogs, a cat, and 6 chickens, as well as a snake.
I will be teaching science and social studies this year to three different classes. This year we get to learn all about Ohio history, geography, and economics. Wrapping things up with Entrepreneur Day in late March. Science will be fun with hands-on and interactive notebooks. I took a S.T.E.M. class last school year and taught a S.T.E.M. summer camp this past summer. I will be incorporating S.T.E.M./S.T.E.A.M./S.T.R.E.A.M. in as many units as I can. I hope you are ready for a fantastic year!
