I graduated from Bowling Green State University in 1997 with my degree in education, and I have been loving my job since then. It is truly an amazing profession! I love having the opportunity to work with so many wonderful young people as they begin to really see the world and their potential in it. I started my career in the Clear Fork School System, and I stayed there for 5 fantastic years. Marriage and family opened the door to opportunities in the Columbus area. I was fortunate enough to be hired on at Alcott the year it was to open. Having earned a biology degree from BGSU in my youth has really complimented my teachings in the math and science areas. My philosophy for education focuses around preparing students for the rigors of their academic careers while creating respectful, responsible, life-long learners.
