In August of 2016, my husband and I moved to Minneapolis, MN from Columbus, OH. Prior to calling Minnesota home, I gained teaching experience in both private and public schools, and with different age groups. I am a graduate of Mount Vernon Nazarene University where I earned my degree in Middle Childhood education with the addition of a K-12 reading endorsement. I live in Minneapolis with my husband, Justin and son, Judah. I am thankful to be a part of the MCS teaching team and community. I am excited for all the growth God has in store for the middle school in the years to come, believing the best is yet to come!
