It is my first year teaching! I am a 2006 graduate of Jennings County High School, a 2010 graduate from Hanover College, and a 2012 graduate of Ball State University. I hold a double bachelor's in music education and performance in flute and piano, and have recently received my English teaching license. I am the Music Minister at First United Methodist in North Vernon and the scholarship coordinator for the Jennings County Players. I also proctor the High School Equivalency Exam at McDowell Education Center. I will be directing my first play, The Glass Menagerie, in February at the Park Theatre in North Vernon. My husband, Andrew, and I met during my student teaching at Central Middle School and Columbus East High School. He is a technologist for BCSC. We have two beautiful cats, Aria and Othello, and live in Westport. I am so excited to share my love of English literature, music, Marvel, and cats with my students!
