I am honored to be teaching at Our Lady of Grace and I look forward to sharing my passion for teaching and mathematics with my students. I structure learning exercises using hands-on activities, cooperative learning, in-depth class exploration of problem solving and discussion. I believe learning should be fun for students and, over the school years, have found that every day is a new adventure.
I strive to motivate students and to provide a safe, nurturing environment so they may reach their greatest potential. My goal is for students to experience success and develop confidence in both their math abilities and in their personal lives as individuals. I consider teaching to be a great gift and I treasure being able to share my own belief in God with my students at OLG.
My hometown is Lima, Ohio where I attended St. Gerard Elementary and Lima Central Catholic High School. Then I ventured south to the University of Cincinnati where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education. I am licensed to teach students in grades 1-8. My family is a true blessing in my life. My husband, Andy, and I have four sons Tyler, Ben, Alex and Josh which keep us busy in many activities year round. The “little girl” of the house is our dog Zoe.
