This year was the start of my journey here at Portland Public Schools. I am thrilled to be apart of the amazing Raider family and I cannot wait for the years to come. I recently graduated from Grand Valley State University with a Bachelors in English Language Arts and Elementary Education. I spent the first half of my Teacher Assisitng in Lowell, MI and the second half in Ourense, Spain. I also had the privilage of Student Teaching in Saranac, MI. I love spending time with my family and friends, dancing, fishing and most of all, working with my first group of Kindergarteners at Oakwood Elementary.
