Welcome!  This is my 19th year teaching.  I graduated from Indian Lake in 1996.  I got my degree in Elementary Education from Miami University in 2000.  I went back to get my Master's degree in Educational Administration from Ohio State in 2004.  I started at Huntsville Elementary in 2nd grade, before moving to 4th grade and then finally 3rd grade.  After 7 years at Huntsville, I decided to try something different and go to Indian Lake Middle School.  I've been here teaching 5th grade ever since!  I teach science and social studies this year, which is an exciting change.  It's a great thing to get to spend your day surrounded by science experiments and terrific kiddos!  I think of 5th grade as a "gateway" year...I am honored to introduce the kids to middle school and help them discover all of the wonderful opportunities they have here at ILMS.
