I have always wanted to be a teacher - I can remember telling my second grade teacher in West Bloomfield, Michigan, that I was definitely going to be a teacher when I grew up! Now that I am all grown up and doing what I love, I cannot imagine any other career for me! After graduating from Calvin College, I spent two years as a US Peace Corps Volunteer in Uganda, Africa. I learned a great deal about myself, teaching, and the world during this time.
Upon returning to the USA, I chose to move from chilly Michigan to warm, wonderful Memphis. I am now married and have a step son in 12th grade, a nine year old daughter, a seven year old son, and my youngest daughter will be two in November - My home is a busy place! I completed my Master’s degree through Bethel University and have also taken up running in my “free” time. I completed my first (maybe only?) marathon in October of 2013 in Detroit, Michigan.
This is my thirteenth year teaching in Tennessee and I am SO excited to be at EPMS!
