Hi! I was born in Seymour, IN, attended school at Cortland Elementary, Shields Jr. High and Seymour High School. I earned a double major in Bible and Elementary Ed from Johnson Bible College in Knoxville, TN. After graduating I moved to Fullerton, CA to teach K-1st grades at Brea-Olinda Friends Christian School. After three years there, I moved to Eastside Christian School where I taught 1st & 2nd grades, taught after school computer, & coached 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th grade girls and boys basketball. In addition to those responsibilities, I, also, tutored, mentored teachers in computer software, & was involved in writing Bible curriculum. After 16 years in CA, I moved back to Indiana & have taught at St. Ambrose Catholic School (6-8) and ILS (7-8 Science)(1st & 2nd grades), as well as subbed in all the Seymour Schools. I am married to Cary, who is an engineer at Cummins and farms, and we have a son, Andrew (13). I, also, have 2 step-daughters, Jackie (24) & Maddie(17). I love spending time with my family, biking, checking out classic cars, and playing/watching sports-especially basketball! I am thrilled & blessed to be teaching @ILS.
