1. What do you love about working at Dalton Local Schools?
A few things I appreciate about Dalton Local Schools are the students, families, and community. It is always good to have the support of the community at the various activities my kids and students are involved in and in the classroom students show respect and respond to being challenged because of the strength of the family support they receive at home.
2. How did you get to where you are today?
I grew up in Kidron and went to Kidron Elementary where my favorite teacher was Mrs Amstutz. She cared greatly for each child, made learning interesting, and told amazing stories. I then attended Dalton Intermediate where Mrs. Berg taught us English and kept us in line. From there, I went to Dalton High School where Mr. Pitz taught me a perspective on life that I hadn’t learned in Kidron. After high school, I attended Malone University where I realized I was no longer in Dalton/Kidron anymore.
I was inspired by multiple teachers and coaches along the way that made me want to follow in their footsteps. My first job was teaching physical science and biology at Waynedale high school. After two years at Waynedale, I got married and returned to Dalton High School in 2000.
3. Tell us one interesting little fact about yourself that people would be surprised to hear.
An interesting fact about me is that I can juggle, ride unicycle, received 12 varsity letters, but can’t shoot a deer to save my life.
