Hello and welcome to Fifth Grade! I am excited about this year and hope you are too. This is my ninth year of teaching and my third year at Cole. I have taught in Tennessee, Texas, and Indiana. I was born and raised in Seymour, Indiana where I graduated from Seymour High School. I am a 2009 graduate of Indiana University. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a Kindergarten Endorsement. My belief is that learning should be a growing process. It is a place to make mistakes and learn from them. I like to encourage all students to try their best and attempt challenges.

I married Derek Lord who was raised here in Lafayette and went to McCutcheon High School and graduated from Purdue University. My husband,Derek, and I have three kiddos, Mason (6), Hallston (3), and Remmy (9 months). We have lived back in Indiana for a couple of years now and it is great to be home around family. I can't wait to learn about your little ones and families. It is very important for us to stay in constant communication. If you have a question please feel free to contact me;
