I graduated from Bethel College in 2012 with my BA in Elementary Education. I grew up in Niles, Michigan and attended Niles High School. Most of my family lives in the Michiana area with the exception of my older brother Drew, who currently lives in Arizona. I love getting outside whether it is to run, bike, or visit the beach. I am passionate about teaching and finding ways to make learning an enjoyable experience. I hope to make each child feel safe and comfortable in my classroom. There is never a dull moment with 1st graders! I am looking forward to meeting all of my students this year and learning from each other.
