I am a two time graduate of the University of Louisville (GO CARDS) and Bellarmine University . I have been teaching for 19 years. Two years at Kammerer Middle teaching advanced Math and Science, Three years at Camp Taylor Elementary and the rest here at Greathouse. During my time at Greathouse, I have taught ECE Resource, 5th grade, and lastly 4th grade (Specifically, Science and Social Studies.) I LOVE SCIENCE and get excited to see young ones that love it as well.
I have several additional roles here at Greathouse. I am the Academic Team coordinator as well as the coordinator for our Kids For Kids Drive. I also help with our musical theater group from Derby Dinner every year.
I live in South Louisville, close to Iroquois Park, and I have a 17 year old son (Joshua) who is a senior at Saint Xavier High and a 12 year old daughter (Elizabeth) who is a 7th grader at St. Raphael. With 2 active kiddos at home, our family is on the go most of the time. However, when we get time to relax, we love to visit Gatlinburg.
I truly love my job and cant wait to work with parents and students to make this the best year ever. #LIONPRIDE!!!
I am a graduate of Bellarmine University and Indiana University Southeast. I have been teaching for 10 1/2 years, all of them here at Greathouse. During this time I have taught 1/2 year in 1st grade, 7 years in 3rd grade, and 3 years as the 4th grade Math teacher. I never thought that I would, but I absolutely LOVE teaching Math all day long!
I live in Floyds Knobs, Indiana (It's not really that far away ;), and I have a 2 year old son (James) and one (gender surprise) due November 8th. My family and I spend most of our free time at Rough River Lake, as we are avid water skiers.
I grew up listening to old country music, I enjoy eating pizza, dancing, and organizing, and I am (sadly) a pretty poor cook! I have climbed to the top of Mount Sopris in Colorado, but I cannot quote a single movie! I am looking forward to getting to know your children and making Math fun and interesting this year!

I am a graduate of the University of Louisville. Go Cards! This will be my 12th year of teaching, and my 5th year in fourth grade.. I love reading and teaching ELA! I hope to encourage your child's love of reading and writing this year.
I live in J'town with my fabulous husband and two kiddos. We like to play at the pool, go hiking, and camping together. This summer, we took a wonderful vacation to the Pacific Northwest. We enjoyed sightseeing in Seattle, hiking in Vancouver, and eating delicious seafood in Portland.
I grew up in Cincinnati/ Northern KY with my five siblings. I am really excited about this new school year, and I can't wait to watch your child grow.
This is my 25th year teaching and most of those years have been in a fourth grade classroom. I love teaching reading and writing because I love to read and write myself! I look forward to seeing great progress this year in all of my students.
In addition, I am from Louisville, graduated from JCPS schools, and love UL sports! I also enjoy spending time outdoors and being with my family. I have a son, Chase. He will be an eighth grader at Meyzeek this year, so I definitely can relate to parental concerns and welcome open communication with all of my students' families.
I look forward to an excellent year filled with learning, laughs, and Lion Pride!
