I attended The Ohio State University-Mansfield then transferred to Bowling Green State University.   I received my degree in Early Childhood Education/Elementary Education from BGSU. Later, I took reading classes from The Ohio State University but finished coursework through Ashland University for my Master’s Degree.  I  taught kindergarten and third grade before coming to Knox County. I taught preschool at Faith Lutheran and was the site manager for a latch key program for a couple of year. Since then I have been at several of Mount Vernon elementary buildings over the years, Dan Emmett, Columbia, Pleasant Street and Twin Oak. Since being at Twin Oak, I have taught reading intervention groups. 


I am married and have 2 grown children and 2 wonderful grandchildren!  When not working on school things, I like to garden, both vegetable and flowers!  I enjoy reading and travelling.  My goal is to travel to all the states and to travel where Sound of Music was filmed. 



The single most significant factor influencing a child’s early educational success is an introduction to books and being read to at home prior to beginning school. National Commission on Reading, 1985

Children who are read to at least three times a week by a family member are almost twice as likely to score in the top 25% in reading compared to children who are read to less than 3 times a week. Denton, Kristen and Gerry West, Children’s Reading and Mathematics Achievement in Kindergarten and First Grade (PDF file), U.S. Department of Education, NCES, Washington, DC, 2002.
