I was born and raised over the river and through the woods in Ohio, about 90 miles from Level Green Elementary.  I'm the oldest of 5 children to a great Mother and Father.  All of my family still calls Ohio home.  It was a great place to grow up.  The trip isn’t far so I get to go back often to visit.  


I graduated from Beaver Local High School in northeastern Ohio in 1992.  


I started my college education at Mississippi State University and then graduated from Fairmont State University in West Virginia.   


This is my 18th year teaching 2nd grade at Level Green Elementary School and my time here has been great.  The students, the families, the staff of Level Green Elementary, and the community are fantastic and always supportive.  I couldn’t have asked for a better place to teach.  


My Family...

Here’s Dawg the Cat. She was our friend for 19 years. Unfortunately, she passed away in April of 2020.  



Here’s Snoopy the cat. She’s a pudgy and well rested cat.
