I started teaching in 2013 after graduating with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Baker College. I taught preschool for four years before I came to Michigan Center. I went back in 2016 and obtained my ZS Endorsement. Also, in 2016 I married my husband on July 4th. Together we have five children ranging in ages 9 to 19. In 2015 we adopted a cat from Cascades Humane Society and we named him Sparty (Go Green!). Completing our family, in February of 2017 we adopted a retired racing Greyhound named Tanz. My hobbies are photography, reading and watching my kids play sports. I really like Star Wars and chocolate!
