I am a proud Kettering alumni. I graduated from Fairmont and went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education at Miami University and a master’s degree from Wright State University. I started in the Kettering School District as a first grade teacher at Southdale Elementary School. Then I was transferred to the Orchard Park community as a third grade teacher. I’ve been here ever since.
When I'm not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family. My husband Nathan is a graphic designer for Acco Brands. There, he designs school products. It's pretty cool to see my students walk into my classroom with some of the products he's designed. We have been blessed with two boys. Our oldest son's name is Nolan. He is almost four. Our youngest, Reid, is 15 months. As you can imagine, life is crazy, but filled with so much joy!
I feel incredibly honored to be teaching in the wonderful Kettering School District. I am surrounded by very talented teachers, supportive parents, and great kids! It doesn't get much better than that!
