Education
  •  I graduated in 1988 from New Albany High School.

Experience

 

I haven't always been a teacher.  In fact, while in college, I worked many different jobs...

 

  • I was employed by the Southern Indiana YMCA for 8 years. During that time, I worked as a Summer Camp Counselor, After School Site Director, van driver, bookkeeper, line dance instructor, and basketball referee.  I even answered phones and gave tours.  
  • I have also worked as a sales associate and then assistant manager of Bath and Body Works, hostess and server at O'Charley's, and lots of babysitting!
  • My first "teaching" job was teaching Preschool at the YMCA, and later, at a daycare center in New Albany.
  • I have been a teacher since 1999, spending my first 8 years at King Elementary in Jefferson County before moving to Meade County.  I completely love my job!!  I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be than Ekron!!
