Degrees and Certifications:
I am originally from Grandville, Michigan. I graduated from Grand Valley State University with my Bachelor's in Language Arts/Elementary Education. In 2007 I moved here and began teaching in the Washington School District. I have taught first, second, third, fourth, and sixth grade! This is my fourth year in the Deer Valley District and I am very excited to be teaching seventh grade!
When I am at home, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our children. I have a 16 year old step daughter, an 9 year old little boy, and a 6 year old little boy. My hobbies include reading, cooking, traveling, camping, and hiking. I am a proud soccer, baseball, basketball, flag-football, and theater mom, so you may run into me at the community park!
