Welcome to 5th Grade! I enjoy every moment and every day of working with students. Throughout engaging Units of Inquiry, students will be able to build a more global understanding of the world around them. Students will continually be encouraged to live the Learner Profile and will be challenged with new opportunities to everyday. I have a life- long love of learning and hope to pass that onto my students. I realize that every student will come into our classroom with their own experiences, strengths, and areas to work on. I will work towards making each child's educational experience meaningful, individualized, and fun. I strongly believe that parent and teacher communication is necessary and together we can work together with a common purpose in mind; your child’s success. 

On a personal note, I graduated from CMU in 2000 and have been with the Oxford School District since 2001. In 2006, I completed my Master’s program in Educational Leadership from Oakland University. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband Brad and my 2 boys, Caden and Liam. I also enjoy running, traveling, going to sporting events, snuggling and playing with my pug Izzy, and having quality time with my friends.
