I have been teaching first grade in Carmel since 2003. I began at Forest Dale as a student teacher in 2002, also in first grade. After graduating from Ball State University in 2003, I was fortunate enough to receive a position at Forest Dale and taught on the first grade team for three years before making the move to West Clay where I taught first grade for six years. This year will be my second year at Cherry Tree. I am excited for the 2013-2014 school year!
Growing up, I lived in Indianapolis and attended Lawrence Township schools. I went to Ball State for my Bachelor's degree, and graduated last summer with my Master's in Technology Education from Indiana University . I am the oldest of three children in my family. My sister graduated from Ball State in 2005 and my brother will be 22 this year. We are a very close family and often times they have been known to make an appearance throughout the school year to read to the class or help out.
My husband and I bought a house in Noblesville after getting married in 2006 and have enjoyed fixing it up and working on projects ever since. We spend a lot of time outside, love country music, going to concerts, cheering on the Colts and Pacers and going to games. We also enjoy camping with our two dogs, Harley and Booker.
I feel so lucky to be a part of such an amazing school system. I look forward to getting to know your family this year. Please never hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments.
