I am so excited to work with all of the kindergarten students this year in class! Mrs. Heather Ousley and I are team-teaching and are looking forward to having an awesome year together. Kindergarten is a wonderful step where “God and Education Lead the Way” on our educational journey.
I am married and have two sons who are alumni of Sacred Heart School. Bryce and Quinn are both recent graduates of Ball State University. Bryce resides in Michigan with his sweet wife, Rachel, and Quinn currently lives in Indianapolis. My hobbies include reading, shopping, traveling to tropical places, and spending time with family and friends.
This is my 34th year in education and I am thrilled to be teaching kindergarten at Sacred Heart School for the past 18 years. Prior to this, I taught 6th and 4th grades at Leesburg Elementary, part of the Warsaw Community School Corporation. I also taught 2nd and 3rd grades and high school students when I lived in the Indianapolis area. Upon college graduation I was a flight attendant and involved with recruiting and training for a major airline. While attending Ball State University, I had the privilege of teaching in Europe through their Overseas Education Program.
Overall, Sacred Heart kindergarten is a very structured, academic environment where all students are encouraged to learn in positive ways. I believe children are a gift from Heaven and all we have to do is find out how to “open” these treasures so they can reach their academic, social, and spiritual potential. I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
