I have been in education since 2005, spending most of those years as a third grade teacher. In 2012, I completed my National Boards, and in 2013, I received my Master's Degree in Reading Education. The students are a joy to my heart each day, and through the years I have watched many young third graders mature into wonderful adults.
My life outside the work place has kept me busy as well; raising five sons and now enjoying 5 amazing grandchildren. Beyond parenthood and education, I have a second love of music which has taken me on many journeys, allowing me to meet some awesome people along the way. I have enjoyed years of performing or just making music with friends.
