    I'm so excited to be teaching preschool at Little Lambs!  I graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Elementary Education, and I also have my Master's Degree in Reading and Literacy from Marygrove College.  I have previously taught 1st and 2nd grade, and have been a reading specialist.  I have a recent Little Lambs graduate, and have a son here in the kindergarten readiness program as well!  I did homeschool preschool with them both when they were 3 years old before coming to Little Lambs for Kindergarten Readiness!  I live here in Haslett with my husband, 2 sons, and our pug Charlie!

    I have a husband, Chris and two beautiful children, Bryn and Gemma.  When I am not working, I love to go to the park or shop with my family.  I look forward to working with you, getting to know your children, and helping them succeed.
