I am a retired social worker from Detroit who decided to follow the family tradidtion and become a teacher. I earned by Bachelor of Social Work Degree, Master of Social Work and Master of Organizational Development, as well as my Teaching Certificate from Eastern Michigan University. I am 43 years old and have twin 2 year olds: Kylie and Wyatt. My family lives in Hillsdale on a working soybean and reforestation farm. I have been an active substitute for over 3 years and love teaching 4th grade, which makes me so excited to be joining the Pansophia team! I believe every child can succeed and will do my very best to make sure yours does! I also believe in movement in the classroom, finding places that are comfortable to learn, and having fun! My favorite things to do are watch University of Tennessee Football (or any football for that matter!), listen to music, read and watch just about anything Star Trek and Sci Fi.
