I am in my 15th year of teaching, but I’ve been at D C West for 12 years, starting my 15th year.  I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Education, Elementary K-6, and ESL K-12, and a Master of Science degree in Special Education K-12, all from Wayne State College. I graduated with honors and I was a member of Alpha Sigma Lamba. I have another Masters Degree in Education, Reading Specialist Pre K – 12, and Administration, Principal, Pre K- 12, graduating with honors, all from Concordia University. I am currently working on my doctorate with higher education through Concordia University.  

I’ve been married to my husband, Ken, for 39 years. He is a self-employed independent truck driver.  We have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. Our sons, Dylan and Wyatt both work. Dylan works as a dock associate, and Wyatt works as a utility line locator. Our daughter, Sarah, is a full-time mother who has two wonderful children, Leighton age 8 (he started 3rd grade this year) and Sophia who is 5 years old (started kindergarten this year). Sarah also works part-time as a manager for a local restaurant.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, crocheting, quilting, sewing, watching movies and spending time with my family and pets.
