I'm a lifelong twin ports resident who lives on the other side of the bridge. I have been teaching since 1997 and have taught in grades three, four, five, and six. I have also served as a Technology Integration Specialist at Nettleton School, where I taught technology skills students in grades K-6 and worked with teachers to integrate technology into their lessons. My approach to teaching is to focus on developing a trusting relationship with my students by creating a safe and supportive learning community. Once that has been developed, we can focus our efforts on academics. I truly enjoy teaching and consider myself lucky to be able to work with children and the wonderful staff at Nettleton School.
Hobbies and Interests: hiking, camping, working out, bike riding, local theatre, watching and playing most any sports, card games (especially cribbage), designing and building houses
