This is the start of my 11th year in the School District of Abbotsford as one of the K-12 physical education teachers. I graduated with honors from Athens High School in 1998. I went to college at Concordia University WI and in 2002 graduated with honors and received my bachelors in physical education. My husband, Lonny, and I live in Withee with our three children. Our children attend Owen Withee Schools; Lincoln is a sophomore, Carter is a freshmen, and McKinley is in eighth grade. In my free time I like to read, coach sports, hang out with my family and friends. My favorite thing about teaching is finding new and exciting activities to share with my students. I teach because I love children and helping them succeed.
