2nd Grade

I graduated from Central Michigan University in 2005 where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education; with a triple minor in Physical Education, Science and English. I was also blessed with the opportunity to continue playing college soccer at CMU where I played for 5 years and learned to share God’s light on and off the pitch as a young adult and student athlete.

After college, I married my husband Steve and we lived in Illinois where I started my teaching journey. We then started our own beautiful family and headed back to Michigan where I have taught for 10+ years in neighboring schools. I have 3 incredible daughters, 2 that attend GHC and 1 that will be at WMCHS in the upcoming year.

In my free time I love to spend time with my family, but I also love to play sports, run, hike and just enjoy the outdoors. I find that many of these loves are also found in my second grade classroom. It is extremely beneficial for students to be active and hands-on in their learning as well as to be outside in God’s beautiful creation exploring and being curious learners. I am so grateful to be given the gift to teach a Christ-centered education to young students who are embracing and learning their role in God’s story and sharing their light with those around them; not only in school but also in their very own communities.

Deep Hope

My deep hope is that my students seek God always as curious learners and explorers of his creation, and in doing so radiate and brighten the world with HIS story and spread Gods love to those around them.
