I have been a part of the FlexTech team since 2011. It has been a rewarding and exciting experience growing with such a great group of dedicated teachers and staff. I love the fact that we offer small class sizes, so that I have the opportunity to work together with my students in all areas of their academics, in addition to, helping them to take advantage of using Project Based Learning. I believe that no two students are the same and thus each student has individual needs. As a special educator, I have the privilege of helping students with unique abilities, struggles, and achievement levels to reach their fullest academic potential.
I have dedicated nearly half my life to the care and well-being of children in many different capacities, but found my true passion in teaching. In the past, I have taught preschool, run my own daycare business, and mentored at-risk youth. I have also substitute taught in all academic areas and grade levels for many years while raising my family and earning my teacher certification.
In my personal life, my husband Mike and I live in Howell and together we have two children. As a family, we all enjoy sporting events, spending quality time together, boating and traveling. In my spare time, I also enjoy reading and working out. I am currently finishing a program at Eastern Michigan to receive my Masters degree in Special Education.
