Welcome to the 2016/2017 school year.  This is my fifth year teaching 7-12 Special Education at South Ridge.  My teaching license consists of early childhood to 6th grade along with k-12 special education.  I am currently working on my Masters degree in Special Education which will be completed this spring. I have served in the Army National Guard and completed my contract April of 2016.  It has been a growing experience for me and has allowed me to become the person I am today.

I am married and have three children.  Two of my children have graduated high school.  My son is currently going to Michigan Tech for Civil Engineering, and my daughter will be starting college this fall.  I enjoy spending time with my family, my summers at the cabin in Wisconsin, gardening, and reading.  

I look forward to another great school year!
