Welcome to my web page. As you can see from my picture, I am a grandmother to a beautiful grandson named Logan. His mother is my youngest daughter Stephanie. She has an older sister named Heather. Besides having two wonderful daughters and a fantastic grandson, I am married to my best friend of 36 years Robert Young. To finish out my supportive and wonderful family are my two son-in-laws. As you can see family is important to my life and so is each child that comes into my classroom. I consider them my classroom family that I need to care for, nurture and and help grow into a person who is a life long learner.
In order to achieve my goal of helping each child love learning and grow and develop as a successful learner I have received my Bachelors of Science in Education and my Masters of Education in Early Childhood Learning from Ohio State University. I have also invested in 30 semester hours past my Masters degree. I will never stop taking classes and searching for new techniques and information that will strengthen my teaching skills and help me find better ways to help all the children that come to me to learn.
Wilder has been open for 25 years. I began my teaching career at Wilder 23 years ago and there is no place I would rather be. I love the school and the community that I serve. The children and parents that make up Wilder are a part of my family and I love being a part of the life of teaching here at Wilder.
