I am looking forward to my second year of teaching Pre-K at Barrett. I graduated from Miami University of Ohio with a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education and reading, and a Masters degree in Elementary Education. Before graduating, I completed research in elementary schools in Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and France. I am originally from Columbus, Ohio and love cheering on The Ohio State Buckeyes! I also love to run, dance, and travel!
