Greetings!

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!
 
This marks my 25th year as an educator and I am so excited!  I can't believe this milestone arrived so quickly.  I still feel the same thrill with the start of every school year as if it were my first.  
 
About me:  I am a 1989 graduate of Fairfield High School, former Choralier, member of Tri M, and Thespian. I attended Lee University, graduating with a B.S. in Biological Sciences and Secondary Education in 1994. I have taught in Georgia, Minnesota, and now Ohio. I have experience teaching science to all ages from toddlers to adults and have worked in varied settings including public schools, home school co-ops, private tutoring, museums, community centers, and entertainment venues. I am currently pursuing my Masters of Educational Technology through Miami University.
 
My current position as Instructional Specialist allows me the honor of assisting teachers in doing what they do best - instruct and assess to meet the needs of all students in their classrooms. I love being able to serve teachers and students in this way.
 
Outside the classroom I am a wife and mother, life-long learner, singer, thespian, nature lover, science fiction/fantasy nerd, and tech geek. I am an avid Whovian, Browncoat, Tolkienophile, Trekkie, Potterhead, and Jedi Wannabe. :)
