Welcome to my classroom!  I am excited to be your child’s teacher. I have been teaching lower elementary since 2005, and I am delighted to be at Clear Lake.  More than anything, I love working with children and seeing the spark of ideas each day.   I love watching them grow academically, socially, and as they develop an inquiry-based global perspective. I strive to create a classroom that supports each student on their level and provides many opportunities for students to take charge of their own learning through engaging real-world activities and projects that create enthusiasm towards learning.
Before teaching, I graduated from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor with a degree in Elementary Education and an emphasis on science.  I am working towards getting my Master’s Degree in Reading at Oakland University.  I am married to Mr. Zmikly, who teaches at Oxford Middle School and coaches football and wrestling..  We live in the Leonard area in the country with two children, Tatum and Kenny.  I enjoy scrapbooking, running, playing volleyball, skiing, and spending time with friends.  I also enjoy Michigan football!  Go Blue!!
My classroom is always open. Please feel free to come to me with any questions or concerns. Thank you!
