I am in my fourth year of teaching at Frankfort Elementary and it is a dream come true.  I've grown up here and am proud to be a part of the community and this school.

I have many blessings in my life including a wonderful husband, Jason and 3 amazing children; my stepson Jayden who is 6 and starting First Grade this year and Ellie and Carson, our 18 month old twins.  Becoming a mom has been the biggest joy I have ever experienced, and also one of the biggest challenges.  Everyday with them brings me great joy.  I live in a beautiful "work in progress" home that my husband and I take great pride in renovating and making our own.  I also have my dream job, educating wonderful minds in a community and district that I hold very dear to my heart.

I recently finished my master's degree in educational technology in 2013 which has really opened my eyes to a world of opportunities for our students.  I look forward to exploring these new tools and finding things that work for my various groups of students. 

I enjoy college sports (GO GREEN!), playing golf, going to the beach with my dog Miley, traveling, curling up with a good book, and watching my children grow. 

I look forward to a great school year and can't wait to dive right in!
