I am beginning my twenty-second year of teaching at Cherry Tree Elementary. I earned my degree from Ball State University in Elementary Education along with Kindergarten and Social Studies endorsements. I have a master’s degree from Indiana University where I minored in Gifted and Talented Education. I also have a master's degree from Anderson University in School Administration. My husband Mark and I reside in Carmel with daughter Adell, soon to be 14, and soon to be 12 year old son, Owen. Adell and Owen both attend school at Carmel Middle so you will see me there too! I do have some hobbies; scrapbooking, photography, gardening, biking, watching a ballgame! I am looking forward to this school year and being the 2/3 Challenge Teacher, and know that “Together we will achieve great things”!
