In a few days you will meet your new classmates as well as your teacher. I am so excited to be starting my 23rd year of teaching at Hornung. I attended Hornung Elementary School when I was a kid, and early on I dreamed of being a teacher. One of my favorite things to do is travel. This summer my husband and I returned to Hawaii to visit my best friend and her family on Oahu. We loved staying on Wheeler Army Airfield! So cool!!!! We also enjoyed the island of Kauai. I love Hawaii very much!!! I also enjoyed spending time with my nieces and nephews this summer. I do a lot of singing and study voice with an amazing Phd student at U of M. It's my number one hobby! I attended Eastern Michigan University for both my Bachelors and Masters degrees. I love nature and am very passionate about caring for our beautiful planet and respecting the diversity of those who make up this great nation. I'm a cat person, but I also love my dog named Otis. The best moments are spent with my family and friends. One of my favorite things is being able to teach 4th grade. I always look forward to getting to know my students each year.
