I am a Carmel native, and I am blessed to have been given the opportunity to teach for this school system. My teaching career began at Carmel Middle School where I filled a one year maternity leave teaching sixth grade reading and English. I also coached their girls' track team for eight years. This experience provided great insight to the expectations at the middle school level. Although I enjoyed my time at Carmel Middle, I was fortunate that my path led me to Mohawk Trails.
The 2016-2017 school year marks my 19th year of teaching. I can honestly say that I still love my job as much as I did my very first year. I cannot think of another career that is as rewarding as teaching and interacting with children. I completed my Masters of Education degree from Indiana Weselyan Univertisty. I am excited to implement new approaches to education that will provide my students the most engaging, enriching, and relevant educational experience possible.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending quality time with my two sons, Zach and Nate, my husband, Heath, and our dog, Sadie.
