**All About Me**

I am so excited that you all are a part of my classroom this year! I absolutely LOVE teaching & am looking forward to an amazing year with all of you! 

I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Central Michigan University (Fire Up Chips!) in 2009 and graduated with my Master's Degree in Reading from Oakland University in  December 2017! I also continue to take classes and workshops to keep my teaching up to date!  You never stop learning!

Some of my interests include reading, learning, working out, boating, snowmobiling & snowboarding! I love everything about MI, my husband and I are huge outdoors people who love to adventure, no matter the season!

Here are some interesting things about me:
