What do you love about working at Dalton Local Schools?

I love working at Dalton for many reasons. All my life I have loved to read, and loved to teach. As the kindergarten title teacher at Dalton, I treasure seeing the growth in our young learners from when they enter kindergarten till when they leave. Teaching the life long skill of reading is just so exciting! I also love Dalton because of my colleagues. Everyone here truly cares about the kids as well as their co-workers. They have included me into this tight knit and strong community just like a family member. I feel very blessed to be here at Dalton.

How did you get where you are today?
When I think about how I got to where I am today, I can’t ever remember a time in my life, when I wasn’t planning on being a teacher.
I remember in first grade sitting on the classroom rug, when I decided I want to be that lady sitting upfront teaching the lessons! This led to me graduating from Eastern Mennonite University with a Bachelors in Elementary Education. After teaching in East Holmes, I took some years off to raise our family. When our youngest became close to school age, I started subbing at Dalton, and realized what a special environment this school had. After Covid was a crazy time to jump back into teaching, but the Lord’s timing and peace reassured me, and that’s exactly what I did! I have been loving teaching Dalton kindergarten students to read and write for the past three years now!

Please share an interesting little known fact about yourself.
A little known fact to most people at Dalton is my love for theater. In 7th grade I got to be Helen Keller in our class presentation, and ever since then I was hooked.
I was in every show I could be in during high school. I was very blessed to have the opportunity to be Maria in Sound of Music at Central Christian my junior year of high school.
While my desire to be on a real stage has changed as I’ve grown older, I consider myself on a new and different kind of stage now. It’s a classroom full of interested kids. Sometimes a little theater goes a long way to help keep young kids engaged!
