I grew up on the west side of the state in Ionia. I attended college at Baker College in Owosso where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a ZA Endorsement. I also met my husband, Aaron, there. He grew up in Owendale so he was excited when we moved back to the thumb. When we first moved here, I taught Head Start for a year before coming to Owendale to teach Kindergarten and first grade. This is my sixth year teaching at Owen-Gage. I love seeing the kids grow and change every day. I live in Sebewaing with my husband and our son, Ian and our dog Layla.
