Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 5th grade! I will be the ELA/Social Studies teacher. This is my third year at Griggs Road, but 11th 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 four children, Taylor 8 yrs old, Ryan 6 yrs old, Nora 2 yrs old, and AJ 6 months. Taylor and Ryan are at Griggs as well in 2nd grade and Kindergarten. We also have a furry golden retriever named Ivy!
