About Me

Hello, Welcome to 4th grade.

I was born and raised in Indiana. I grew up on a farm, in a small town, in northern Indiana. I am the youngest of three kids, my entire family lives in the state of Indiana. My parents still live in the house I grew up in. I received my education in one school district and even had the same bus driver for 13 years! I played every sport my town had to offer, and am still an avid sports fan today. My favorite teams are; the Chicago Cubs, Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers and the Indiana Hoosiers.

I like to be active and be outside. I play tennis, softball and basketball, and travel as much as possible. I vacationed in Europe this summer. Part of my big travel plans in the next few years is to make it to all 50 states and all 30 MLB stadiums. I am currently stuck on 38 states and 17 MLB stadiums. If I am not playing sports or traveling, you can find me at the dog park, with Wrigley, or riding my bike on the Cultural Trail.

This is my 17th year of teaching and my second year in Carmel Clay Schools. All of my teaching experience has been in the Indianapolis Metro-area. I received my bachelor's and master's degrees in education from Indiana University! (HOO HOO HOO HOOSIERS!)
