Degrees and Certifications:
Teaching second grade at Lincon Heights is truly my dream job! This is my third year at this amazing school. I'm originally from Canton, Michigan. I received my first bachelor's degree from Northern Michigan University in Child Development. I later earned a second bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Michigan - Flint. After taking some time off to raise my babies, I went back to teaching preschool and then moved into special education. In 2018 my family and I moved to North Carolina. I have been happily married to my husband for 25 years and we have a son at Appalachian State and a daughter at UNC Wilmington. We also have a standard poodle named Scout. I enjoy taking him for walks in my neighborhood. I also like to swim, camp, hike, and travel. When I have time, you will also find my reading, crafting, and making scrapbooks of my family’s adventures.
