Hello! I have been an educator at Oakland Elementary for 23 years. I grew up in Evansville, Indiana on our family farm where my parents instilled in me a strong work ethic and a love of learning. I went to WKU, and graduated with an elementary education degree. That is when I decided to stay in the beautiful city of Bowling Green, Ky. I have two children, Cameron and Karlee. who are attending WKU. I also love spending time and going on vacations with my fiance, Chase.
During the first 17 years, I taught in the primary grades (mostly 2nd/3rd). This is my fifth year as the ECC (Elementary Curriculum Coordinator) at Oakland. My plan is to continue to bring effective research based strategies into our classrooms and to improve student learning and engagement. I love Oakland, and I am so excited to see our school grow and learn.
