Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 5th grade! I will be the ELA/Social Studies teacher. This is my second year at Griggs Road, but 10th year teaching. I taught kindergarten in Indiana for two years and third grade in Ohio for six years. I truly enjoy being in the classroom to see sparks fly when learning occurs. Reading is one of my favorite hobbies as well as learning more about our country through travel. I am originally from Indiana and attended Purdue University, graduating in 2009 with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I’m married to my high school sweetheart and we have three children, Taylor 6 yrs old, Ryan 4 yrs old, and Nora 1 yr old. We are expecting baby #4 in February. We also have 2 furry golden retrievers named after our favorite baseball team- Wrigley and Ivy!
