Teaching brings me such great joy! I have always wanted to be a teacher. When I was a little girl, I used to make my little brother and sister be my students. Lol! The 2016-17 school year will be my 20th year of teaching for Hudsonville. My Bachelor’s degree is from WMU in education, and I have my Master’s degree from GVSU. I have taught high school, middle school, and elementary. I have also taught school in two other states, Oklahoma and Louisiana.
When I am not teaching, I am busy being a mom and grandma! My son Keegan graduated from CMU, and he works for Fox 17 news! Both of my daughters, Emily and Caitlin, are still in college. I have a 2 year old granddaughter named Harlow. I love to travel, ride my bike, hike, sew and do crafts. I love all Michigan colleges, but I especially have an allegiance to Michigan State University! Go Spartans! I am a college basketball fan. I love, love, love to read and to learn new things. I have a passion for using technology in new ways in the classroom. And most importantly, I LOVE kids!
I am so excited to be your teacher! Welcome to fourth grade!!
