Welcome to Oakland Elementary! I began my professional teaching career in Sandusky, OH. I moved to Bowling Green KY and have taught in Warren County Schools since moving in 1996. I began teaching at Lost River Elementary and transferred to Oakland and am currently teaching there now.
A little background information about me. I am married to Brian and we have one child, Clay. I love dogs and have 2 currently. I love that my dogs take me for walks often. They try to keep me exercizing and healthier. My most favorite things to do are reading, work on scrapbooking, crafts, and spending time with friends and family when I can. My family lives in Ohio and my husbands family lives in Minnesota so we don't get to spend a lot of time with our families. Thank goodness for phones.
I received my BA in Elementary Education with an Endorsement for Special Education K-12 at Hiram College in Hiram, OH. I received my Master's Degree at Western Kentucky University. I do maintain my Highly Qualified Teacher Status by continuing professional development activities yearly. I have worked with students from PK-6th grade.
My Personal Mission Statement:
As an educator at Oakland Elementary, I want to be part of a collaborative team that works to help all students obtain the necessary skills needed for a successful future. I want all of our school to make all students and families feel welcomed and valued at our school. Ultimately, I want all of our students to become responsible, hard working, caring, and productive citizens.
