A little about me (as a teacher):
 I have a BA in Elementary Education from Goshen College and I received a Masters in Education from the University of Illinois. I taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade in Illinois and Wisconsin for a total of 11 years.  I taught Reading Recovery for Hillsdale Schools for a total of 9 years.  I am in my 4th year of teaching the Ready Readers intervention program at Gier School. 
A little about my family: 
My husband, Mark teaches analytical chemistry at Hillsdale College.  I have a daughter who is a teacher in the Dominican Republic and a daughter who is a nurse along with a son-in-law who is an arborist.  I also get to spend time with my 3 year old granddaughter and on October 22nd we welcomed a grandson into the family! 

A little about me: 
Over this past summer, I started kayaking the lakes and rivers of Michigan with my husband.  We also love to ride our 21 speed bikes on the old railroad bike trails in the Midwest.  When I have free time, I like to read, bake bread and cookies, and make meals for my family and friends.  I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my granddaughter and when she is not in Hillsdale, you can often catch me Skyping and reading my favorite children's books to her.
