I am beginning my 21st year teaching at West Muskingum! I taught 4th grade for 17 years and this is my fourth year teaching 5th grade. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Ohio University and a Master in the Art of Teaching from Marygrove College. I have been married for 14 years to my incredible husband, Mark and we have two amazing daughters; Laney is 12 and is a 7th grader at WMMS and Lyla is 10 and is a 4th grader at WMES. Outside of school, I enjoy walking, going to the beach, and spending time with my family and friends. I also love to watch the Ohio State Buckeyes!! My hope this year is for every student to know they are smart, special, and capable of anything!!
