I was born and raised in Lansing, MI. I grew up surrounded by arts and engineering. My family is full of "tinkerers". We enjoy making and creating! I am married and have two amazing little boys.
As a child, I loved to read mystery stories. My favorite series was Encyclopedia Brown. I also enjoyed Beverly Cleary stories and the work of E.B. White. I loved to act and perform. My younger sister, brother and I would use our imagination to occupy our time with toys and games. My favorite activities to play were "house" and "school". I admired my teachers and knew at a very young age that I wanted to grow up to be a teacher just like them.
I am a dreamer & a leader. I enjoy thinking up new ideas and creating change. I can't wait to meet all of the students and families at Scotch School. We are going to have an awesome year together!
