I am very excited to work with your child this year. Kindergarten is a wonderful, meaningful step in your child's learning journey. I have taught several grade levels here at HSPS, but the kindergarteners are close to my heart with their joy of learning, eagerness to make new friends, and love for life.
As an undergraduate of Michigan State University, (GO SPARTANS !!) I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Education. I continued my education at Central Michigan University, earning a ZA endorsement in Early Childhood Education. I also hold a Master of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education from Grand Valley State University. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to put this knowledge into practice by working with young children in the classroom.
Northern Michigan has been my home since 1987. My husband Dan and I have two children, Stewart and Perry. I enjoy gardening, reading, trying new recipes in the kitchen, and traveling in my free time.
I am enthusiastic about the year ahead and look forward to sharing your child's wonder, exploration, and growth with you and your family. Welcome to Blackbird!
