Welcome to Young Fives!
Benjamin Franklin once said, "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." This year, I hope to involve my students in interactive, hand-on learning that makes their school experience interesting and fun.
I am passionate about teaching children. I ran a day care for 14 years, taught preschool for 4 years, and then began teaching (kindergarten and first) at Dundee Elementary School.
I received my undergraduate degree from Siena Heights University and am currently pursuing my Master's Degree in Child Development. My husband and I live in Hudson, Michigan. We have three adult children--Kevin, Stephanie, and Travis. Our oldest son Kevin and his wife have a daughter who will be 2 years old in October. Our family raises deer. In my free time I enjoy baking, gardening and spending time with my family.
