Hello! And welcome to my website!

I am very excited to begin this school year and continue my teaching career at Hudson.   I have been teaching for the past nineteen years and am honored to be given the privilege of working here. 

Throughout my teaching career I have had the pleasure of experiencing education in a variety of grades, levels, and environments. I began my teaching career in Tuscarawas Valley as an Intervention Specialist working with students in grades K-4. I primarily taught language arts and math but also taught reading intervention and summer school.I then spent three years working at Education Alternatives, a day treatment program for students with emotional/behavioral disorders. I had the opportunity to work with students in grades 7-9, teaching every academic subject including English, Math, History, and Science.After that I spent four years as an Intervention Specialist at Chardon High School. In Chardon I co-taught Algebra 1 and resource History classes.

This is my eighth year at Hudson High School.  This year I will be co-teaching Algebra 1 with Mrs. Brunner,  co-teaching Algebra 2 with Mr. Knavish, and teaching Resource Geometry.  I will also have two Study Strategies classes. 

I am looking forward to having an AWESOME year!
