Hello! I am so happy to have joined the staff here at Mohawk Elementary School!
I am in my sixth year of teaching, previously teaching at St. Joseph in Crestline and Marie English School for Students with Disabilities in Marion, Ohio. I have a passion for all students, and especially those with special needs. I am a special needs sister and it was inevitable that I take on teaching in the field of special education. It is definitely where my heart is!
I have a husband at home along with five kids. My oldest daughter is in college, the two youngest in the 8th grade, with two more in high school. We spend most of our time on the softball field or wherever else they are playing sports. I have two fur babies, pit bulls named Rebel and Diamond, and two Russian tortoises, Mishka, and Babishka. The tortoises will be visiting the classroom this year!
I graduated from The Ohio State University with my undergraduate degrees in Early Childhood Education and Psychology in 2011. I then received my Master of Education from OSU in 2012. I went of to take classes at the University of Findlay and received certification as an Intervention Specialist in 2016.
I am thankful for the opportunity to teach your children this year alongside the wonderful aides in the classroom!
