Welcome to third grade. I have been teaching in Carmel for over 30 years. I came to Prairie Trace in 2005. I have taught kindergarten through 3rd grade. I am the mother of 2 grown and married children, Nick and Molly. Molly works in Chicago as a CPA and Controller and Nick is working for our family business. Molly and her husband have one son James who is turning 2 in August. Both of my children graduated Miami of Ohio. I live in Noblesville with my husband Steve and dog Fletcher, a black lab. We often take care of our son's dog, Bob, a black lab and our daughter's yellow lab, Willie, along with our grandson, James. I am an avid Butler Bulldog fan. My husband and I both attended Butler University, as undergraduates. I received my Masters Degree in Education from Ball State University and his 2nd degree is from Indiana University.
