My hometown when I was a student was

Detroit, MI

I graduated in


I studied

Elementary Education

I currently live in

Alpena, MI

I am now

A fourth grade teacher for the Alpena Public Schools. I teach all subjects.

Since graduating from Alma

I moved around the state for a couple of years looking for the right fit. I have grown quite a bit as a teacher and as a person. I have also gotten engaged and planning a 2/29/20 wedding.

My Alma education

helped me with being prepared for the classroom. I was able to learn about upcoming changes (such as Common Core). I also still to this day leave well written lesson plans (I remember being told, you want someone to just pick up the lesson and know what to do).  I would advise a new graduate that the future can change. I graduated with a plan for my career and where I wanted to teach but I was open to change. I now love where I teach.

My favorite place(s) on campus included

I enjoyed spending time with friends, whether in a dorm room, the library, or one of the campus places to be. I loved walking across campus and seeing the changing of the leaves and the bustle of the campus.

My favorite professors(s) included

Dr. Thelen and Dr. Findley. I remember a lot of what they taught and it has really helped.
