I have been teaching since 1993. I earned a BA in Elementary Education with minors in Spanish and Social Science from Michigan State University. I have also earned a Masters Degree in Educational Technology. I live in Traverse City with my husband, John and my three children. When I am not in school, I enjoy running, cycling, cross country skiing, and hiking…basically anything outdoors. I also enjoy reading, traveling, visiting museums, practicing Spanish, and making cookies.
