I graduated with my undergraduate degree from Western Michigan University. My major was in Special Education and minor in Physical Education. I continued on to get a masters degree from Saginaw Valley State University in Early Childhood Education.

This is my 18th year teaching in Clarkston Schools. My first 14 years I spent as a Special Education Teacher at Clarkston High School. I am currently in my fourth year at Clarkston Junior High where I continue to teach Special Education. I have enjoyed teaching at Clarkston High School and continue to look forward to meeting a variety of young adults with each new year.
