I feel very fortunate to be a resident of Rootstown as well as a teacher in the district. This will be my 20th year teaching (19 in kindergarten!) I have two children. My daughter Alena is a Rootstown graduate and is a Zoology major at Kent State University. My son Jackson is a junior at RHS and is a member of the Cross Country and Track teams. I am also "mom" to River and Chuck, my two cats. In my spare time I enjoy bicycling and working on home projects that are usually inspired by Pinterest or HGTV. I love teaching kindergarten and look forward to a great year!
