I feel so lucky to have my dream job teaching kindergarten! Teaching is one of my passions, and it is hard to imagine life without school. I think one of the reasons I like teaching so much is because I love to learn. I think sometimes the students teach me just as much I teach them. I enjoy spending time with children and seeing their perspective, so being a teacher is a great fit for me.
This year begins my tenth year teaching at Carmel Elementary. This is my second year teaching kindergarten, however. I taught third grade for eight years. I received my bachelor's degree from Indiana University (Go Big Red!) and then I finished my master's degree from Ball State University.
Originially from northern Indiana, my husband and I share our home in Carmel with our two boys, Tate and Pete. We have three cats named Mattie, Alice, and Trixie.
