August 2006

I grew up in Oxford and I am a proud graduate of Oxford High School. I earned my undergraduate degree in Middle Childhood Education from Bowling Green State University in Ohio and my Master's degree in Reading and Language Arts from Oakland University.  I knew very early on that I wanted to become a teacher.  Education was always a priority in my family, and I feel very fortunate that my family helped me to develop a lifelong love of learning.  
When I manage to find free time I love to read and go camping, and these restful activities help me to feel more balanced.  I enjoy spending time with my husband, Justin, our daughters.  Elizabeth and Jessica, son, John, our dog, and the rest of our family.
