Personal Note: I will be beginning my 20th year of teaching this year! Wow, that sounds crazy. Before becoming a staff member at McPherson Middle School I worked for 15 years at Gibsonburg Middle School teaching sixth grade. I also worked in Akron, Ohio for two years teaching fifth and sixth grade in the beginning of my career. I have been in the area of language arts for all 20 years, but continue to learn more from my students each day.
My educational experience began at St. Michael School in Canton and then I attended Massillon Jackson High School. I earned my Bachelor of Education at Baldwin-Wallace University, my Master of Education at Bowling Green State University and I continue to take classes to enhance my teaching ability.
I have a wonderful husband and two amazing children who keep me on my toes. My daughter is a McPherson Middle School student and my son will be in second grade this year. In our free time my family and I enjoy spending time outdoors, playing sports, traveling and most importantly READING!
