Welcome to Room 12 and the 5th Grade!

West Maple is a second home to me as I have been a teacher here for many years. Most of those years have been spent getting fifth graders ready for their middle school experience. In my classroom you will laugh, explore, observe and question all while having fun with your friends.

When I am not teaching I am usually spending time with my husband, two dogs and two cats. They are a constant source of entertainment and enjoyment. I especially enjoy running with my two dogs in the mornings and on the weekends. They also help me to train for the marathons and half marathons that I participate in a few times a year. I spend my spare time in Northern Michigan at my cabin which sits on the Ausable River. My favorite activity to do up there is sit and watch the water go by or float in a kayak down the river.

Fun Facts:

Favorite color: Orange and I own orange cars and bikes

Favorite sport to watch: Cycling (especially the Tour de France)

I received my Bachelors Degree from Michigan State and my teaching degree from University of Michigan, but I always root for the Spartans.

I am a vegetarian and eat Veggie Hot Dogs everyday for lunch while at school.

As you can tell from my picture I love going to DisneyWorld!
