Hi! I am SO excited to be your 4th grade teacher. You can find out a little more about me here!
I was born and raised here in Jackson Township! I graduated from Jackson High School in 2012, and went on to be a Purple Raider. I graduated from the honors program at the University of Mount Union with a double major in Psychology and Early Childhood Education. I am a lifelong learner and am excited to keep growing and learning everyday!
This is my 4th year teaching! In 2016 I completed my student teaching in Kindergarten at Sauder Elementary. I then went on to teach 4th grade for two years here at Amherst. Last year I taught 3rd grade, and now I am back to 4th this year!
Family is a huge part of my life! My mom is a 4th grade teacher at Strausser Elementary, and my dad is a project manager. My little brother is a Junior at the University of Akron studying Engineering. I also am recently married to my husband Seth! We have been married for 2 years, and we have 4 pets. Two little dogs, Rubi and Paisley, a bunny, Bella, and a cat, Kona. We are huge animal lovers! We also LOVE doing things outside. Some things include taking our boat out on the lake, hiking, and traveling to new places. I also love going to the movies, going to concerts, and I LOVE to read!
