Meet the teacher
Hello. Welcome to my web site. I have been teaching in Jackson Local Schools for 30 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. My son attends Jackson Local Schools and runs Cross Country and Track and Field. I have a daughter who graduated from Jackson last year and is now working as a cosmetologist. Jackson offers their students many opportunities to explore their interests. 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 Mocha and a cat named CAT, both of which I rescued. My father's dog, also a rescue, Buddy now lives with us as well. We are a animal loving/rescuing family. Animal rescue is a passion of all the family. 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!Go Jackson Bears Cross Country and Track!!!
