As a graduate of JM I bleed red and black! Teaching once again in the rooms I spent most of my time learning in. I took every subject FACS had to offer and went on to the University of Wisconsin-Stout to major in Home Economics education. I did not stay in education as the fashion world compelled me to peruse a 15 year career in fashion merchandising before settling down to raise a family and join my fellow educators. Teaching every age group from infants to adults from daycare to college I believe every learner wants to learn and it is my job to help them achieve their personal educational goals. It is with that objective that I will set out to inspire, challenge, and empower each learner in my classroom.

All assignments will be posted to Google Classroom! If you do not have the class code please see me to join a class. Guardians once the students have joined the class you may be invited to receive the class summary of weekly happenings.

I look forward to having each of you in my class this year. Should you ever need assistance in the class please do not hesitate to invite yourselves to Academic Seminar, set an appointment with me for before/after school, or send me an email with your questions.

Let's make it  an awesome Rocket year!
Go Rockets!
