I started teaching in the Carmel Clay School system 14 years ago! I have taught second grade at Smoky Row for almost 12 years now! I had previously taught first and second grade at Mohawk Trails. I have grown up right here in Carmel! I graduated from Carmel High School. I got my elementary education degree from Purdue University. I then completed my masters of education from Ball State. I have two daughters, Patricia (7 years old and here at Smoky Row in second grade as well) and Addison (4 years old and here in the EC program). My husband and I enjoy watching them grow and learn each day! I am looking forward to a great 2016-2017 school year!
