I have been affiliated with the Boone County Schools for the past 37 years, as a student, graduating from Boone County High School (class of 1983!) as a teacher, and as a parent living in Union. I began my teaching career at Ockerman Middle School in 1989. I was blessed to do student teaching at OMS under the direction of Carol Kanabroski, and then was hired for the following year. I taught in both 6th and 7th grade, teaching reading, math, and computer word processing, which was new at that time. I left my position, and my middle school teaching career at the end of 1994, after the birth of my first child. For the next twelve years I was self-employed, operating a daycare/pre-school in our home. I returned to teaching in the spring of 2006. I taught at Mann Elementary for 1 year, and at RA Jones for 7 years. I now begin my 4th year at OMS.
This year I will celebrate my 28th wedding anniversary and my 53rd birthday. We continue to live in Union. We have two children; our son A. J. is 23 and a student at Cincinnati State. Our daughter Hayley is 21 and a student at Cincinnati Christian University. In my free time, I enjoy boating, camping, working in my yard, and spending time with my family.
I am excited for the new school year and I look forward to working with a new group of students and their families! I feel blessed to be a teacher in this district. I am proud of our students, and proud to be a Hawk!
On the left side of this webpage you will see a link for each class: If your child is with me for AM A, AM B, or PM B they are in the classroom called, "8th Grade Math." If they are with me for PM A, they are in the classroom, "8th Grade Algebra I".
Next Thursday, August 24th, will be our curriculum night. I hope I will get to meet most of you then.
Please don't ever hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns!
