“Our Backyard and Beyond”
Educational Background: In 2006 I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Purdue University. I am currently working on a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education with a focus in reading from Ball State University. I hope to finish in early 2014.
Teaching Experience: Prior to coming to Oak Trace in 2012, I taught five years at North Elementary in Noblesville Schools.
Family: I recently got married to Eric. I am the youngest of three children. My older sister, Tiffany, lives in Istanbul, Turkey. She is getting married in January 2014 and will live with her husband in Noblesville. My brother, Jonathan, and his wife Lori also live in Noblesville. They have one son named Nolan, and I absolutely love being his aunt and Godparent!
Hobbies: In my free time I love spending time going out with friends and family, as well as traveling to new places. With my sister living in Europe, I have been lucky enough to travel there several times. My absolute favorite city so far has been Barcelona, Spain.
Other Interesting Facts: I once had the opportunity to hold a Barbary Macaque (monkey). Well actually it jumped right up on my shoulder, so I was forced to hold it! It was an amazing experience!
