I proudly come to Stadium Drive to begin my tenth year of teaching. My teaching career began in the Berkley School District at Angell Elementary. I hold the relationships and teaching experiences very close to my heart but as our family started to grow so did my desire to teach closer to home. I started to look for openings in Lake Orion and our neighboring communities and luckily I ended up getting hired to teach fifth grade at Blanche Sims in 2012!
Last year my husband Dave and I welcomed our third child, Julianne. We also have a Stadium first grader named Gianna and a three-year-old son named Andrew. Being at home was a precious time, but I truly missed being in the classroom. Ever since I walked the halls of Stadium Drive as a child I’ve wanted to be a teacher.
Regarding my education, I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Michigan State University as well as a Master of Arts in Education from Michigan State. My goal is to instill a lifelong passion for learning within your child. I believe that the home-school connection is a critical one and look forward to working with you to ensure that your child has a successful year filled with motivation, engagement and hard work!
