I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children. I, along with my staff, will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations for all children and providing support systems to ensure they are met. We will address school culture through our Social Justice Club, student assemblies and Capturing Kids Hearts. We will set high standards for teacher performance and continue to find ways to engage our surrounding community. It is our goal at Abbott Middle School and Orchard Lake Middle School that all students achieve to their highest potential.
Middle school is a vital bridge between elementary school and high school. It is also a period when young people, often for the first time in their lives, begin actively seeking a sense of purpose and place. It is our job to provide them with these opportunities, while also keeping them engaged, challenged and supported. Our children are gifts with limitless potential. Through the efforts of our entire school community, we can help them to develop their own unique skills and talents and prepare them for continued success far beyond their early adolescent years.
While we embrace the challenges of the future, we continue to cherish and celebrate the traditions of the past. We hope your visit to our website will give you a quick snapshot of life at our school.

I have been teaching in West Bloomfield since 1994. I have taught grades 2 - 8 over the course of my career. I've found that my favorite grade to teach is whichever grade I'm currently teaching. Before teaching in the WB district I was a student at Ealy, OLMS and graduated from WBHS in 1989. I graduated with a Bachelors in Education from Michigan State University. I earned my masters in Instructional Technology from Wayne State and my Education Specialist in Educational Leadership through Oakland University. When I'm not teaching I'm spending time with my husband and three children.
