I attended Lutheran grade school and high school which led me to receiving my Special Education degree from Michigan State University. I student taught in Rochester, Michigan, with half the year in resource and the other half in a third grade classroom. I am coaching 5th and 6th girl's volleyball and in the winter I will coach 5th and 6th girl's basketball. I enjoy watching any Michigan State sports team, spending time with my family, and being at the lake. I find great joy in helping students learn and in finding and providing the tools for the best way for them to learn.
