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.
