About Me
7th & 8th Grade Science Teacher
Upton Middle School
Teaching Grade
7th, 8th
Education Focus

Welcome to Upton Middle School!

I have been teaching 7th & 8th grade Science at Upton Middle School since the Fall of 2015 and have taught middle school science at Edwardsburg Middle School since 2010.  I grew up in Plymouth, Michigan, and then attended Michigan State University where I attained my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education & Integrated Sciences. During my first few years of teaching I decided to finish my Masters Degree in Science & Mathematics Curriculum at Michigan State University.  I currently live in Stevensville, with my husband Matt, a Bridgman graduate, our son Benjamin who was born in March 2018, our daughter Mae who was born in September 2020 and our cat, Patches.

If you don't see me at school, you'll most likely find me hiking the beaches, gardening, or hanging out up north with Matt, Benji and Mae.
