BA Elementary Education Indiana University


I began teaching in public schools in 2003. I started teaching here at Union Center in 2005.

My goal as your child's teacher is to create a positive and enjoyable learning atmosphere where every student is encouraged to love the process of learning and realize the application of this knowledge. As the curriculum content is of great importance, I will also focus on nurturing the character development of each child in my class. I will strive to promote true compassion and a strong work ethic amongst the classmates. 

I love:

Spending time with my family. New addition Gloria!

Playing music. I have played the banjo for 15 years and dabble in other instruments.

Learning and reading about the latest interest.

Working outside.... anything outside. Planting, growing and harvesting fresh food. Providing for family and friends!

Visiting new places and meeting new people.
