In 1999, I graduated from Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in Mathematics.
I moved to Huntsville, Alabama from a small town in Northwest Indiana, and I began teaching fifth grade at Hazel Green Elementary School. I have taught fifth grade for a total of 17 years, with one year at Meridianville Middle School, fourteen years at HGE, and two years at MMIS. While teaching, I earned my Master’s Degree in Reading Curriculum from Grand Canyon University.
My favorite subject to teach is mathematics! I enjoy making math meaningful with the use of technology and real world applications. In addition to my love of teaching, I also have a passion for sports! Through the years, I have been on the game day staff of the Tennessee Valley Vipers, Huntsville Channel Cats, and Alabama Hammers. This season begins my 13th season on the Huntsville Havoc game day staff!
When I am not teaching or working hockey games, I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and watching Notre Dame Football games! I am the proud auntie of three nieces and five nephews. My husband, Chris, and I have two dogs; our fur babies’ names are Bailey and Penny.
