Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, and thanks for visiting!
I am so excited to be embarking on my 11th year of teaching and my first year at Forest High School! I have taught grades 2nd through 12th with high schoolers being my favorite students! I am from Michigan and love the Great Lakes State. I try to go back and visit every year and just might be crazy enough to retire back up there! I attended Eastern Michigan University where I earned a B.S. in Exercise Science and spent 10 years in hospital settings as a patient educator for cardiac patients as well as teaching pre-natal exercise and toddler exercise classes. I have had some fun moments realizing a student was in my toddler class at one time! I have been married to my amazing husband for 19 years and my son graduated from Forest High School in 2018. My daughter is a current student at Forest High School. This is the first time I have taught at a school one of my children attended and I am thrilled to be able to see my daughter throughout the day.
Teaching is a very rewarding and motivating profession for me and I am so happy to be in the position to work with our developing young adults every day! I love hearing about their lives and helping them achieve their academic goals.
I'm looking forward to a wonderful first year as a Wildcat!
