Hello! I have been a part of the Western School District a good majority of my life. I started at Bean Elementary in kindergarten and graduated from here. Western is my home. I graduated from Spring Arbor University. I live in Jackson with my husband, daughter, son and dog. This is my tenth year of teaching and my sixth year here at Bean. In my six years here, I have spent three years in first grade, one year in fourth grade and two years in fifth grade. I am excited to be back teaching first grade! It will be a great year!
