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 an have a twelve year old daughter, a ten year old son, and my youngest daughter is four - My home is a busy place! I completed my Master’s degree in curriculum and instruction through Bethel University and have recently discovered that I love robotics in addition to "regular" science.  


This is my fifteenth year teaching in Tennessee and I am SO excited to be entering year four at EPMS!
