Childhood memory of School:  Miss Ruth Kaiser was my second-grade teacher at the Andrews University laboratory School (forrunner of RMES).  One autumn day she took us out to a tall field of grass and we caught, observed, and then released grasshoppers and crickets.  Miss Kaiser modeled excellence in teaching and it was in her classroom that I decided to become an elementary school teacher when I grew up.
What I enjoy about working at RMES: I enjoy the educational collaboration a large staff provides and students who love to learn.  I am thankful that Jesus is part of our curriculum.
Hobbies:  Gardening, Reading, Biking, Swimming, Cooking, Piano, and Travel.
Education:  B.S. Elementary Education/General Science - Andrews University; M.A.T. Education Reading Specialist - Andrews University
