  Hi! I am glad to share a little about myself with you.  I was born in Illinois.  My family moved to Indiana when I was three.  I began college at Purdue University and transferred to Bryan College with a basketball scholarship in January of 1993.  I married in 1994.  I graduated from Bryan in May of 1996.  I began teaching at Spring City Elementary and remained there for 5 years.  This is my tenth year teaching at RCES.  I have had the opportunity to teach 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade.  I am currently in my 7th year of teaching kindergarten and feel this is the grade I am most successful at. Handyman Vector Clipart image My husband, Thomas, is a union electrician.  My son, weightlifter lifting a barbellGavin, is in 7th grade and my daughter, trumpet playerMerry, is in 5th grade, both attending RCES.  I have a 90 pound dog named woman walking her dogMillie and we love to jog together.  My family loves to campfirecamp and be out on the Fishermanwater.jet ski water funI enjoy my class this year.Cartoon faces  They are very hard workers,  well behaved and cooperative.  We are able to accomplish so much in our day.  I appreciate how kind they are to each other and enjoy spending the day with them.
