The 2016/2017 is my 17th year of teaching and my 15th year teaching third grade. I have taught at Loon Lake Elementary School since the very beginning of my career! All children are learners and can be successful. It takes a lot of hard work, determination, and positive people to support the learner. In order to help me to be a better educator, I attend workshops, conferences, and graduate classes.
I was nominated "Teacher of the Week" through 100.3FM in 2012. Click HERE for radio announcement and nomination. Click HERE for my interview with Jay Towers. I was lucky enough to also be nominated Loon Lake's Teacher of the Year in 2012!
In order to get extra funding for my classroom I have written a many grants. in 2015 I was awarded funds from the Foundation for Excellence to purchase 8 new Android Tables for my classroom. In 2013 The Foundation for Excellence was gracious enough to award me almost $3,000 for a document camera, interactive software to work with a Bright Link Solo (interactive projection) as well and a sound system. Thank you Foundation for Excellence!! Click HERE to see article.

My husband and I have an 9 year old son named Owen who is a fourth grader at Wixom Elementary this year. I also have a six year old daughter named Kendall who is attending Wixom Elementary this year as a second grader.
Becoming a parent has definitely made my life complete and has taught me to look at the world with a true sense of wonder again. Every day I am in awe at how much my children learn, change, and grow. It is a true blessing to be a parent and I am grateful I was chosen.
