Education & Background: Western Michigan University, 2008 with a Bachelors of Science in Education, majoring in elementary education. I am presently working on my Masters Degree through Grand Valley State University.
Why teach? Since a very young age teaching has been a passion of mine. I can remember making my brother and cousins “play” school while I taught them in our living room. Once in elementary school I had amazing experiences and teachers throughout my education, especially in Kindergarten. I remember taking a field trip to my teachers lake house where we learned all about our beautiful area and community, I left thinking, “this is what I want to do when I grow up”.
What are you excited about in the school year ahead at OMPS? I am most excited about being part of this new journey at Old Mission Peninsula School alongside our students, crew and community. It has been a dream of mine since graduating from college to work at the school where I learned to be a respectable, caring and exceptional learner. I look forward to an amazing school year and building relationships that will last a lifetime.
Interests/hobbies: I enjoy spending time with my husband on the water, fishing and riding bikes. We love to spend time on our family’s Old Mission Peninsula farm and fruit stand. I am excited and thrilled to be involved with “the most beautiful school setting in Michigan”.
