Bio

 

 

I'm so excited to be teaching Social Studies! I love American History and hope to inspire students to learn more about our country's past.  

I am the mother of two wonderful grown children!  My son Adam is a physical therapist and my daughter Rachel has a business degree and is a stay at home mom.  I have four beautiful grandchildren whom I love spending time with!  

I love dogs and I have a sweet yorkiepoo named Rocky! I enjoy reading, cooking, crafts, and spending time with my family.  I am blessed to work with such wonderful teammates here at BGIS and I especially love teaching 6th grade!

It is a very exciting time in education with the integration new technology into our curriculum.  I look forward to helping prepare students for the challenges they will face with the rapidly changing technological world we live in.  Teaching American History is a deep passion of mine.  I hope to enourage students to learn more about our great country and to gain an appreciation for the sacrifices others have made for the freedoms we enjoy.
