I am originally from the state of New York, but moved here in my 20’s.,My teaching career began as a public high school teacher, but was soon contracted to teach German and English at Lutheran High Northwest. Once I had experienced the Christ-centered school for the first time, I knew this was where I belonged. I continued teaching in Lutheran schools and later attended Concordia, Ann Arbor for my colloquy (Lutheran Teacher’s Diploma). I have been blessed to serve at Our Saviour, Armada; St. Peter’s Richmond; St. Paul, Millington; Trinity, Monitor; Peace, Shelby Twp.,; and now here at Zion in Auburn. I am happy to be back in the classroom for a bit while serving as principal, and to be living “up north”!
