My purpose is to educate, motivate, encourage and build relationships with young men and women through teaching. I am a relationship builder, listener, creative thinker, and achiever.
Fairfield County has a special place in my heart, as my parents who are both teachers, coaches and mentors in the county raised me on a small farm in pleasant township. Also, I have three brothers that graduated from LHS while enjoying an incredible experience throughout their years because of the GREAT teachers. Thus, I am familiar with the area and only desire to give back to the community as it has provided me so much!
Your child deserves the best educational experience possible and Lancaster City Schools is the PLACE TO BE for Learning, Caring and Succeeding! I truly believe we are fortunate enough to have great teachers, administrators and staff that CARE about building relationships with the youth of Fairfield County.
Prior to coming back, I taught Algebra and Geometry, engaging students with clear daily objectives at Shawnee High School in Lima, Ohio.
I am a perpetual learner and continue to develop each day as an educator. I continue my professional development daily as I enjoy listening to podcasts, motivational videos, Ted Talks, etc geared toward helping promote creativity as well as learning with adolescents.
I received my Bachelors of Science in Industrial Engineering and Management as well as Mathematics, which is an engineering based degree heavy in operation and strategic planning, as I have a passion for both. Furthermore, I continued on my path toward education at Cincinnati, where I later received my Masters in Educational Leadership and received my Principal licensure to add more value to the Lancaster City School System while growing as a leader in education.
