I am thrilled to be the media center teacher at Roberts Elementary! As this school year starts, I will begin my 17th year with UCS, my 10th as a media center teacher. It is amazing how time flies when you are having fun! I began my career as a classroom teacher and have taught various elementary grade levels at several different Utica schools. I had the great pleasure of serving as a Lead Curriculum Technology Teacher and working with a team of educators to guide others in integrating technology into the classroom. I earned my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Oakland University, my master's degree from Saginaw Valley State University in Educational Leadership/Administration, and have earned an additional +15 credits from MaryGrove College. I am a wife and mother of 3 beautiful girls. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time reading, playing, shopping, and hugging up my girls as much as I can.
