I began my teaching career in Hamilton in 1994. I taught five years at Buchanan Elementary. In 1999 I began teaching at Cleveland Elementary until 2009. I moved to Bridgeport when it opened. I have spent 23 years teaching kindergarten. I also was a Title teacher in my early years and have looped to first grade in 2019-2020.
I love teaching kindergarten students. I enjoy watching them grow and learn so much through the year. It is really amazing to see them bloom into readers, writers, and problem solvers. Their excitement for learning keeps me so passionate about being a kindergarten teacher.
I live in Hamilton with my husband and youngest son. We have three sons that have attended Hamilton City Schools. They are all 10 years apart from each other. Spending time with all my boys is my favorite thing to do. I enjoyed many years of watching them play sports. Through the years they have played football, basketball, baseball, and golf. We love having family nights and getting together to watch Ohio State football. My family also enjoys vacationing at Gulf Shores, Alabama.
I am so proud to be working and living in the Hamilton community and being a part of the Bridgeport family that I love so much.
