I am excited to be at O.A. Peterson as a Gifted and Talented Specialist for my 5th year. This will be my 31st year in education. I have taught in Oklahoma, Michigan, and Texas in kindergarten through fifth grade. I am a native Michigander and earned my degrees from Michigan State University in East Lansing and Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti. I am married and have two children - my daughter and son both graduated from Texas A&M.
