I have had the privilege to teach K4 and Summer Day Camps the past three years at BBPS. I lived in Michigan until I was nine, and then moved to Tennessee for two years before coming here to Indiana. I graduated from Brownsburg High School in 1995, and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education (Grades K through 4) from Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC.
My husband is, DJ, is from Rockville, IN. We have been married almost 16 years and have four children. We married halfway through college and spent a wonderful time in SC while I finished school. After college, we moved back home to Indiana, where I began teaching. I substitute taught in Hendricks County my first year, then taught fifth and sixth grades for one year before our daughter was born. I was blessed to stay home with our children for eight years before I came to BBPS.
