Interest & Hobbies: 

I LOVE spending time with my 2nd grade son, Grayson, and my husband, whether that be going on bike rides, hiking, camping, or just plain relaxing in a hammock in the backyard.   I am also a HUGE music fan! 

What I like most about my school: 

Lincoln is a warm and friendly school.   Even on my first days here, I noticed so many students smiling and saying, "Good Morning".    Education is more than the learning in the classroom; it is also about how we help to grow kind, thoughtful young adults.   

Favorite Quote: 

I love so many lines from great poems:
