Welcome to 5th grade! I am so excited to be a part of the 5thgrade team again! I have been teaching at Woodbrook for 20 years and was the Special Education/Life Skills teacher here for 17 years. I then moved to general education and have taught 5th and 3rd grade in the past 2 years. Prior to having my children, I also taught early childhood, second, third, fourth and sixth grade. I am looking forward to a wonderful year this year in 5-3! I am a graduate of Purdue University --GO BOILERS!!---with licenses in General Education as well as Mild and Severe Disabilities. My husband, Bill and I live in Noblesville with our dog, Molly and our cat, Mia. We have 3 grown sons; Paul, Steven and Neil who all went to Carmel schools and are graduates of Carmel High School. I enjoy walking, reading, watching NASCAR races, and spending time with family and friends.
