EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND:  Associate Degree from Lansing Community College; Bachelor of Science in Education from Central Michigan University (graduated cum laude).  Major--Cognitive Impairment.  Minor--Reading Specialist.  Continuing Education courses at Spring Arbor University and Grand Valley University.

CAREER EXPERIENCE:  Substitute teacher for area schools 1995-1996. I began teaching at St. Patrick School in 1996. I am currently teaching second grade. I have taught grades 4th-6th and 7th and 8th grade Religion.

"I enjoy investigating innovative methods to help each learner to achieve his/her potential.

St. Patrick School offers me a unique opportunity to watch former students grow and flourish as they move through their education at St. Pat's.  It's great that you can identify each student by name as they walk into your classroom on the first day of school because you have had interactions with them as they progressed to your grade level."
