Welcome! I teach 3rd grade at Whitewater Valley Elementary. I am beginning my 14th year of teaching in Southwest Local School District! I have spent most of my years teaching third grade. However, I also have experience teaching second grade for two years. This is the start of my fifth year at Whitewater Valley Elementary. Within my time at here, I have witnessed what a special place Whitewater Valley Elementary is each and every day! Every day I feel incredibly lucky to work at such a wonderful place surrounded by helpful co-workers, my loving students, and supportive families. Thank you for making me feel so welcomed right from the start! Each day is filled with enthusiasm, excitement, and learning! I am grateful that I can tell my family and friends that I have the best job in the world! Third Grade is such a fun year with so much to learn!
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends! My husband, and I, have two children. Our son, Nathan, is 16 and in eleventh grade. Nathan just started his first job, is a newly-licensed driver, and is taking challenging classes in high school. We are very proud of him! Our daughter, Kaitlyn, is 7 and has just started second grade. She is involved in dance, Girl Scouts, and softball. She keeps us on our toes, and laughing and smiling, each and every day.
I am here, for you, if you have questions or concerns. Thank you, again, for your support and dedication! It means so much to myself and your children!
