August 2000

I began my teaching career in Oxford at the beginning of the 2000-2001 school year.  For the first thirteen years of my career, I taught 7th and 8th grade language arts, 8th grade history, and the honors 8th grade language arts classes.  I am currently teaching language arts at OHS. 

During my years at Alma College, I had the incredible opportunity to study abroad at Aberdeen University in Aberdeen, Scotland.  I met my husband, Jim Gibbons (the band director), while teaching here in Oxford. We have three beautiful children, twins Hannah and Emma and Sarah. We also have a fun-loving yellow lab, Merlot. We very much enjoy living and teaching in the community of Oxford.

I love to read, do yoga, and most importantly, spend time with my family.
