Thanks for visiting my page! I am so thankful to be working at Western Primary School. I love the rural community school environment. It reminds me so much of my hometown of Akron Indiana. I graduated from Purdue University in 2002 with a degree in Elementary Education and Minor in Reading Specialty. I have loved teaching because is truly encompasses my talents. I love reading, music, and art. This is a job where I can utilize all three! Working with kids is the best job because everyday is different and there is nothing better than when you can see your students succeed!
