Meet the teacher
Hello. Welcome to my web site. I have been teaching in Jackson Local Schools for 29 years. I started my career at Lake Cable Elementary and then came to Sauder Elementary. I started my teaching career in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where I grew up. I was born and raised in a suburb of Pittsburgh called Sarver (about 45 minutes north of Pittsburgh). I attended and graduated from Slippery Rock University. Yes, there really is such a place. I taught in Pennsylvania for a year before making Ohio my home.I have two children which both attend Jackson Local Schools. I have a daughter and a son. I have always been proud to teach in Jackson, but I am even more proud of the education that my children receive as students in this fine district.I love animals of all kinds. I have a dog named Pumpkin and a cat named CAT, both of which I rescued. I live in a log home and have a lot of critters that visit my home. Currently, I am raising two raccoons. They visit nightly and their favorite meal so far has been onion rings.I am a Steelers fan and a Penguins fan. My family and I spend a lot of time visiting Pennsylvania and attending football and hockey games. Go black and gold!
