I graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a bachelors degree in 1990 and earned my masters degree from EMU in 1995. I began my teaching career in 1990 here at Western. My first year of teaching included teaching in both the high school and the middle school. Since then I have been at the middle school teaching 8th grade science, 7th grade math, and 8th grade math all at various times over the years. Currently I am teaching 8th grade math and 8th grade math lab. I enjoy helping students learn math and always make myself available to answer their questions. Helping your middle schooler be successful is my top priority.
