I am proud to announce that I am a graduate of Kettering schools. I attended Beavertown, Rosewood, Indian Riffle, and Fairmont East. I am a strong supporter of Kettering schools and am entering my 18th year of teaching at JFK. Seventeen of those years I have partnered with Marilyn Dickey in our multiage classroom. We enjoy teaching about Ohio history, Native Americans, geology, rocketry, and we generally study about 25 novels each year with our students. We are proud recipients of the Martha Jennings Scolar Award and Excellence in Teaching Award. In the last several years we have been awarded grants from KEA, the Air Force, SmartBoard, and MacDonalds to further enhance and benefit our students' learning. Teaching is my passion and joy!

I have been married for thirty years to David, a tooling engineer. We have three children. Jonathan is a WSU graduate, engaged to be married this year. Justin is a highschool freshman at Beavercreek HS, and Kaitlyn is a 6th grader at Ankeney. We have a white German Shepherd, a Siamese cat, a cockatiel, and four hermit crabs.

I enjoy reading, travel, hiking, swimming, biking, and cheering at my children's many sporting events.
