I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to share my love of learning with the staff and students here at Bean Elementary. I've taught in special education for over 20 years, since earning my BA at Michigan State University and MA at Eastern Michigan University. I married my best friend, Bruce, in 1997 and have been blessed with two delightful children, Abbey and Ben. We enjoy hiking, canoeing, reading and playing games. I am a loyal Spartan! I also enjoy supporting the Tigers.
