Welcome to KC!


This is my 16th year teaching at Elgin and my fifth year teaching Kindergarten! The first five years of my career I taught third and fourth grade writing. I  also taught third and fourth grade special education  for one year as well as Title I Reading (K-2) for the last five years! I enjoy teaching kindergarten and look forward to helping my students grow and succeed!

I have a Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education (Preschool - Third grade) from Mount Vernon Nazarene University. I also have a Master's degree in Reading and Literacy K-12 as well as my Reading Endorsement K-12.

I have been married for 15 years and have three daughters. Madelyn is a seventh grader,  Anna is a second grader at Elgin and Elyse will be 2 in October.  I grew up all around Columbus and truly enjoy country life. We have lots of rabbits, two goats and two cats. I love reading and spending time with my family!
