Upton Middle School
Teaching Grade

Education Focus

Welcome to Upton Middle School! I truly feel that the Upton staff is an incredible group of caring and dedicated individuals, and I'm proud to have been a part of this tremendous team since 1999.

I received my Bachelor's Degree in Education from Central Michigan University (home of the mighty Chippewa) with a triple minor in language arts, history, and psychology. I earned my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership in 2005 from Grand Valley State University. I am a third-generation educator, and my husband teaches high school English in a neighboring district.

In addition to teaching, I have also coached girls' basketball, volleyball, and even tried my hand at coaching powder-puff football one year. I have supervised Upton’s Chess Club for several years, and you're likely to see me around at sporting and musical events, demonstrating our school spirit, scoring Upton track meets, and cheering on our kids.

Thank you for visiting my page, and GO, BEARS!
