I am a 1980 graduate of Crown Point High School (I was even a student at Winfield!). I graduated from Purdue University in West Lafayette in 1984. Upon graduation I taught 1st grade for 3 years until my son, Andrew was born. I decided to take 10 years off from teaching to be at home with my two children, Andrew & Karli. When my youngest child was in 2nd grade, I returned to the classroom. I have been employed by Crown Point School Corporation since 1996. I have taught 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 8th grades. I love my job and feel blessed to be able to work with children.
When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy keeping busy with many things. I love to knit, read, cook, bike, swim and recently began running. I have started doing triathlons!!
I am married and have 2 children.
