Education & Background: I grew up in Sault Ste. Marie, MI before attending Michigan State University where I earned my degree in Elementary Education with a focus in Language Arts and a minor in Child Development. I spent last school year in the Chicago Public Schools in a Kindergarten classroom.
Why teach? It has always been a dream of mine to teach, and to be able to create a classroom community where all children feel welcomed, safe, and encouraged. I am excited to be able to do that this coming year.
What are you excited about in the school year ahead at OMPS? I was attracted to Old Mission Peninsula School because of the strong community support system with common goals for our students; this kind of support will help our students go above and beyond.
Interests/hobbies: In my free time I love to be outdoors, and even more importantly on the water with my family. I could not be more excited for the school year ahead!
