I am a teacher at Norway Schools in Norway, Michigan.
I currently teach 8th grade math, Algebra 2, English 9 and English 10.
I believe that all students are capable of learning and that with effort and perseverance all students are capable of academic achievement!
More About Me
I was born and raised in Livonia, Michigan, a suburb outside of Detroit. I graduated from Western Michigan University with a BA and later earned my Masters from Marygrove College. I recently earned my PE endorsement from Madonna University. This is my second year teaching in Norway Schools. Before moving to the UP, I taught for 15 years. I have taught mathematics from Pre-Algebra through AP Calculus as well as high school English, including AP Literature and AP Language. I was part of the team that developed and implemented the Common Core Units for mathematics for Oakland County. Additionally, the last two summers I presented at the Michigan Council of Teachers of Mathematics conference.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my four children, cycling, snowshoeing, sewing, and reading. I am also a certified personal trainer and work at the YMCA.
