I graduated from Spring Arbor University with a Bachelor of Science in Education with minors in science, exercise and sport science, and early childhood development. I have had the privilege of teaching at Western for 15 years. I am married and have 3 children.
When not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family, walking, and reading. I also enjoy vacationing Up North where I grew up!
My goal as a teacher is to provide a comfortable atmosphere where students are able to take risks and challenge themselves. I want students to enjoy school and to be able to find the pleasure in discovering new ideas through reading, listening, and participating in every activity offered to them throughout the school year!
