I have been teaching in the Bloomington schools since 1997. I started at Hillcrest, was hired to teach 5/6 at Oak Grove, and then moved to Valley View Elementary to teach fifth grade. I was offered a position at Hillcrest in 2003. I n 2015 I had the opportunity to be a Peer Coach for teachers within Bloomington and really enjoyed working with teachers throughout Bloomington to reflect on their teaching. My family lives in Bloomington and attend the Bloomington Public schools. I have three boys, a dog and a great husband. In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out at our cabin, driving kids to sports, reading and playing games.
