This is my tenth year teaching and my ninth in Garden City. My first six years were at Abe Hubert/Horace Good Middle School. I spent my 7th year at GCHS before returning to HGMS for years 8 and 9. Before moving to Garden, I lived and taught in Albion, Michigan. I attended Albion College for undergraduate, majoring in English with Secondary Education and minoring in Psychology with Secondary Education. During my 2nd-4th years in Garden City I earned my masters in Teaching and Curriculum from Michigan State University. I graduated from Mason High School in Mason, MI in 2004.
In May of 2016, my husband and I welcomed our daughter Brooksleigh Mae (we call her Brook…or ReeRee). I try to spend as much of my free time with Brooksleigh and my husband as I can. I also enjoy cooking, gardening, sewing, PiYo, and reading. I’m slowly learning to quilt and knit.
My brother Luke lives in South Korea with my sister-in-law Hyein. Tobin, my youngest brother, lives in East Lansing. My kid sister Samantha is a senior in high school.
I have two dogs: Basil, a 10 year old Lab/Spaniel mix and Sparty, a 9 year old Boston Terrier. I also have two cats, Lucifer Sue and Serafin Eugene.
