It was always my dream to become a teacher. There was never a moment in my life that I ever wanted to be anything else!
I began my career as a 6th grade teacher, then taught 2nd grade and kindergarten. During my 4th year of teaching I was lucky enough to be trained as a Literacy Collaborative Coach through The Ohio State University. This training forever changed me and the students I was lucky enough to teach because I was given the gift of a deep understanding of the reading and writing process.
After my training I spent 7 years as an LC while teaching half time in 2nd grade for a few years and kindergarten for a few years before becoming a principal. Being a principal was NEVER part of my plan, but I like a challenge, so...I went for it!
I have been married to my husband, Justin, for 13 years and we have 4, yes 4, kids! Our oldest, Rocco, is 11; Gino is 8 and our twin girls, Rosa and Bella, are 5! Needless to say, life is a little crazy, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
