As a West Salem graduate, I am happy to have served and continue to serve the district in a variety of roles.This is my fourth year in 5th grade. In previous years I had the dual roles of intervention teacher and building lead teacher. I was responsible for many reading and writing interventions, math interventions, and staff support. From the fall of 2009 to spring of 2014, I served as the district reading coordinator and Early Reading Empowerment teacher. I started teaching in the district in the 1997-98 school year as the middle school Spanish teacher and teacher in first and second grade. I guess you could say I've always worn many hats!
I live near Grandad Bluff with my husband, son and daughter, as well as our 3 little dogs. We enjoy spending time with our families on my parents' farm and at our family cottage.
