Hi! I started working at Woodbrook in the early 1980's as a substitute teacher. I then went to southern Califronia and taught in a private school there for two years. I have been teaching third grade at Woodbrook since 1985. I received my BS degree from Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana. I received my MS degree from Butler University. I am married with two children. Both of my children went to Woodbrook from kindergarten through fifth grade. I feel so blessed to be a part of the Woodbrook staff and to have such wonderful supportive parents. Third grade is such a transitional year, and that is one reason I love teaching this level.
