I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Michigan and have been in Florida for 30 years. It has been an honor and a privilege to be part of Madison Street Academy. This is my 23rd year here and my 20th year teaching the 5th grade. I earned my B.A. from Saint Leo University and have been teaching at Madison Street since I graduated.
I have teaching in my blood as many of my relatives are also educators. In my heart I believe that all children can learn and need to be challenged to do their "personal best." As your child's teacher, please know that I am dedicated to working hard to ensure that every child is successful...this can be accomplished as we all work together.
When I'm not at school, I enjoy decorating my home, cooking and being with family and friends. I spend my summers in Traverse City, Michigan...my second home...and enjoy boating on the beautiful waters of Lake Michigan. My favorite seasons in Florida are fall and winter. I love the holiday season and college football...Go Gators!
I'm dedicated to Madison Street Academy and am so fortunate to be a teacher here.
