Head Teacher

B.S., Child Development and Family Studies, Purdue University

I am a graduate of Purdue University with a Bachelor of Science in Child Development and Family Studies. I have worked with children for over 25 years in many different capacities.

As an educator, I believe that each child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. I will help children to develop their potential by believing in them as capable individuals. My classroom will be a caring and safe environment where each child can blossom and grow. I hope to instill a love of learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them. I feel there is a need for compassionate, strong, and dedicated individuals who are excited about working with children. I am such a person and will always strive to be the best educator that I can be.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a beautiful 16-year-old son and two beautiful stepchildren. We are very busy with sports and cherish the time we are able to spend together. We love to be outside, enjoy family movies, and love a good “family game night."

AA, Early Childhood Education

I began the love of working with children when I was 11-years old. I babysat for family and friends, mostly playing, baking, or making crafts with the children and cleaning when they were in bed. I earned an associate's degree in Early Childhood Education from Ivy Tech while working in several child care centers. I have implemented new programs and have been lead and co-teachers. I am currently finishing my Bachelor's degree with a special interest in Autism Spectrum Disorder at Purdue Global. I love to watch children learn and develop. My favorite school subject is science so naturally I love to introduce this to young children.

In my spare time I like to spend time with my three children, five grandchildren, and other family. We all have similar interests of animals, music, crafts, and movies.
