Economics, Government, Senior Composition


I began my collegiate experience at good ol' Muskegon Community College, where I completed an Associate's Degree.  From there, I took my studies to Grand Valley State University, achieving a Bachelor's Degree in Group Social Studies as well as a minor in English.  Later, I completed a Master's Degree from Western Michigan University in Educational Technology.


My professional teaching experience began in the 2008-2009 school year at Walkerville High School.  While I enjoyed my time there, I only spent one year in the district because I jumped at the chance to come to Shelby High School.  I am currently in my sixth year as a Shelby Tiger.  I work with the Student Council, Quiz Bowl, and Movie Club groups in addition to teaching my courses, which include College Prep English, Government, Economics, and English 9B.
