    Welcome new fourth graders and families!  We are going to have a great year!  I am so excited to be your Math and Science teacher this year.   

    This is my sixteenth year of teaching, and my eighth year at Sauder. The Sauder team is a great group of professionals who love what they do, and it shows.  I am grateful to work with these amazing people.  My teaching experience includes Revere Local Schools in Bath, Ohio and Northwest Local Schools in Canal Fulton.  I have really enjoyed my time in fourth grade as the students are so ready for the challenges that come their way (and they get my corny jokes:). I am a graduate of Kent State University where I received both my undergraduate and Master's degree.  

    My husband Steve is an IT guy. He and I have three children, two dogs, and a horse.   Hannah is recently graduated from college and is a licensed Social Worker in the adoption field.  Aubrey is college junior looking to work with autistic children after grad school. Ben, the youngest, just graduated from high school and is going to study civil engineering in college.  My days of being a soccer mom are over! Opie Doodle-Bug and Toby Rat-Dog are the Podnar pound puppies. Skeeter is our horse that Aubrey and I share.  We both ride, but not at the same time. :) I'm sure as the school year progresses, the students will hear many stories of Hannah, Aubrey, Ben, Rat-Dog, Doodle-Bug, and Skeeter.  

    I will be communicating weekly with parents mostly through email, so make sure I have a current email address on file.  Please send in a note, email me, or call if you need to contact me.  I will get back with you as soon I am able.  My email address is:  My phone number at school is (330)830-8028 x5136.  I look forward to partnering with you this year in the educational process of your child. We are going to have a great year!
