About Me

I've been teaching professionally since 2009 after graduating from Bowling Green State University in Ohio with a Bachelor's of Science in 7-12 Integrated Language Arts. I received my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction from BGSU in 2014 while teaching in New York state. My family and I moved to Fort Campbell in January 2018 where my husband is stationed with the US Army, and I have been teaching at Kenwood High School since February 2018. I love to read, cook, garden, spend time outdoors with my family, and snuggle with my 3 year old daughter.

Congrats on finishing another year! Hope you all have an incredible (and safe) summer!

And to my seniors: It was a pleasure getting to finish out your senior year together. Good luck in every endeavor your pursue!
