Though this is my fifth year at Kennedy, this is my eighth year teaching! I've taught both kindergarten and third grade at Kennedy, and previously taught at an alternative school in the Westwood Community Schools district. I received my Bachelor’s and Master's degree from Madonna University, with concentrations in literacy. I am also certified to be a Reading Specialist. I am a believer in The Leader in Me process and strive to live the 7 Habits in my own life each day! I also love integrating technology into the curriculum to enhance learning and teach 21st century skills.
I live in Ann Arbor with my two dogs, Diesel and our newly adopted rescue dog, Hazel Mae. I love spending time with friends & family, practicing yoga, kayaking, hiking, traveling, cooking, reading, and crafting!
We love the hiking trails behind our home!
Hazel loves kayaking, but Diesel isn't so sure about it.
