"All the world's a stage and all the men and women merely players." - Shakespeare

I am blessed and honored to play the role of teacher to my DHS kids. It is, I believe, what I was born to do.  I also believe teachers should focus instruction around the development of the individual with the goal of creating citizens who are contemplative, inquistive, and passionate communicators and thinkers. 

My other roles in life include being a mother to my daughter, Kelsey, a wife to my husband, Shane, a stepmother to Sheldon and Anna, and a nonnie to our newest family member, Aslyn Sofia.
