Welcome to first grade! I am excited for a brand new year. This is my 11th year teaching first grade and my 11th year in Sanger and at Chisholm Trail Elementary. I am married to my husband Chris and have a 16 year old step son who is a junior this year at Guyer High School. I am from Grand Rapids, Michigan. I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a bachelor of arts in Spanish and Elementary Education. I have also received my Masters Degree from Grand Canyon University in Reading. I enjoy gardening, traveling and spending time with my family.
