I grew up in the amazing town of Albion, Michigan. I always enjoyed being outside in that area and also while visiting my grandparents in northern Michigan. I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in education from Eastern Michigan University and earned a Master’s degree from Buffalo State University. My experience ranges from teaching elementary, middle and high school in several places in the USA and overseas. Wherever my husband Mike, our two daughters and I have lived or traveled, we have hiked, camped and enjoyed being in and on the water. Some of my favorite experiences are taking students on outdoor excursions and learning about nature and the environment. I look forward to sharing my love of nature and the outdoors with the community and students at the Greenspire School.
