    4th Grade Teacher

        I'm excited to be teaching 4th grade again at Pine Tree this year! 

        I received both my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Elementary Education from Ball State University.  In addition to my certification in Elementary Education, I am certified to teach high abilities and middle school mathematics.  I spent 6 years teaching 4th grade in Yorktown before having the opportunity to stay at home with my boys for a season. During that time, my family moved to Avon.  I started teaching in Avon Schools in February 2014 when I covered a maternity leave.  Since then I've taught both 3rd and 4th grade here at Pine Tree.
    My husband and I are sending our oldest off to college this year!  He is attending Grace College in Warsaw, IN where he will be a member of the golf team.  What a huge transition we have ahead of us!    In addition, we have 3 other boys who all attend Avon Schools, one right here at Pine Tree! 
        I'm thrilled to get to continue to be a part of Pine Tree again this year as a family and as a teacher! I consider it a privilege to work with your children each day.  I'm looking forward to everything this year has in store for us.  Fourth grade is an exciting year.
