A little bit about me:
I grew up in Detroit, but after 30+ years call Hillsdale home.  I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education, Language Arts and History from Siena Heights and a Masters Degree in Educational Technology from Western Michigan University. I also have an additional endorsement in secondary English from Siena Heights. When I'm not at school I enjoy working out, doing yoga and cooking.
I have two sons (Matt and Nate) who both graduated from Hillsdale High School.  Matt was a Lieutenant JG, in the Navy, and is now is an ironworker in Seattle, WA. Nate was a Lieutenant in the Navy, as well, assigned to the USS Kentucky - a Nuclear Submarine. Nate just finished his his tour with the Navy and is using his GI Bill to become a Master Carpenter.  The education that the boys received at Hillsdale Community Schools has allowed them to go on and do great things. They use the skills they acquired while students in Hillsdale daily.
