Inspiration: I have always wanted to be a teacher ever since kindergarten! My kindergarten teacher was Mrs. Schmidt and I loved her! My youngest brother was five years old when I entered Ohio State and he became my "experimental" kindergarten child. I was privileged to accompany him on many field trips and help his class with projects.
Philosophy: I taught 3-4 year olds at a preschool my first year out of college and then found my "home," The Summit! I saw an ad for a middle school Science or Math position at The Summit and called in for that position. After hearing my experience, I was offered a position in the Montessori as an assistant. What I found was an amazing philosophy and school. Not only did I further my education to get my 3-6 Montessori degree, I also found a home and school for my daughters, who are Summit lifers. I have been blessed to work at the Summit. The school and its community is an integral part of my life. I am so happy to be a part of The Summit community doing something that I have always wanted to do -- teach kindergarten! It is extra special that my two girls have gone to school here and I have fabulous colleagues!
Personal: Husband, Jim, my high school sweetheart; two daughters, Marie and Rachel. I enjoy reading and music of all types. In the past, I have been actively involved in the summer camp program. I also volunteer when I can for various SPA events. Outside of the classroom, I have helped the parish collect various food stuffs and Christmas gifts. I have volunteered to teach preschool religion classes over the years. My husband and I also donate to United Way as well as The Summit.
