About Me

The 2014-15 school year marks my 19th year teaching, 18 of which have been at Christiansburg Middle School. I live in Salem with my family, including my husband Josh, who is an Assistant Principal at Hidden Valley High School, and our two children Austin (13) and Emma (9). We also have a Goldendoodle, Bindi, and two cats, Sox and Turbo. In my time away from school, I enjoy gardening, scrapbooking and other crafts, reading, and being with my family. I spend a lot of time running my kids to their practices - horseback riding, karate, rock climbing and swimming are their sports of choice. Finally, I am spending a lot of my free time writing curriculum into iBooks for use as interactive iPad books.
