Elementary Intervention Specialist


Hello! I have been an elementary teacher for 19 years. My first 10 years of teaching were in Arizona where I lived for 18 years. I love the sun and being outdoors. When I  moved to Ohio, in 2000, I was an elementary teacher in Gahanna, Ohio. After staying home with my own four children for many years, I had the opportunity to be a long term substitute in Johnstown for two years. Fun fact: Can you tell I love even numbers? I married my husband in 2002. My children were born in 2004, 2006, 2008, and 2010! I was born in an even numbered year, but I won't tell you which one!

I am currently working full time as the fourth grade intervention specialist and it is a role that I treasure. My own son has down syndrome, and being his mom led me to learn so many wonderful and inspirational things about teaching anyone who may feel challenged by schoolwork. I am here to make a difference! Although I miss the sun of Arizona at times, I wouldn't trade my time here as a Johnstown Johnnie for anything!
