JOINED OXFORD COMMUNITY SCHOOLS
August 2000

I have been teaching in Oxford since 2000. I taught at the middle school for 13 years before moving to the high school. In my time in Oxford, I have taught 7th and 8th grade ELA, 8th and 9th grade US History, ELA 9, ELA 11, and ELA 12.

I firmly believe in a global education and appreciate teaching in an IB school. I spent a semester in college studying at Aberdeen University in Aberdeen, Scotland. Teaching in an IB school allows me to bring in my personal knowledge of being a global learner.

My husband and I are both teachers and parents in Oxford Schools and love that our three children have benefited from the opportunities Oxford offers. We also have two dogs to complete our family. 

In my spare time, I love to read, garden, do yoga, travel, and spend time with my family.
