About Me

     Hello! Welcome to First Grade.  I began teaching at PTE during the 2003 school year. Prior to this, I was at home with my family while they were young. I am married to Don and we live in Fishers. Don is a financial planner and also enjoys singing and playing guitar with his band, The Time Bandits.

     We have four children and fIve grandchildren. Our son, Chandos,and his wife Kelsey live in Colorado. He is a sofware engineer and Kelsey is an occupational therapist. They are new parents this year with a son, Elliott!   Our daughter Chelsea, and her husband Mike live in Noblesville. She is also an occupational therapist and Mike works as a contractor in construction.  They have blessed us with Skyler, age 11, Sophia, age 8 and Spencer age 4 and Stella who will celebrate her second birthday in December.  Our 24 year old son, Colin lives at home and works at Target and Kroger's in Fishers. Our daughter Courtney, is a Senior at Purdue University. We are excited that she will graduate in December with a double major in Finance and Business management. We have a cat named Snickers and a dog named Mason. I enjoy watching sports, swimming and spending time with my family!

     My education includes earning a Bachelor's and a Masters degree at Ball State University in Elementary Education. I have a variety of experiences including teaching Kindergarten, First, Second, and Sixth Grades.
