Welcome to myclassroom!   As an Oxford High School graduate and now an Oxfordeducator, I know that this is a great place to live, work, raise afamily and grow roots for a very long time. After a quarter of a centuryworking for OCS, I have thoroughly enjoyed my involvement with thestudents, the parents, the school and the community. My career here hasseen many job changes within the Physical Education Department. I havetaught all secondary grade levels, sixth through twelfth grade, and nowhave settled in at the middle school. My coaching has been expansive,including several Varsity level sports (softball, volleyball, cheer andtrack) but now I am exclusively the 8th Grade Volleyball coach and have been since 1998.

On the personalside, I am married to my husband Gary. Our son Chase, (2009 Oxford HighSchool graduate and now pursuing his college degree) and our cat Sabrinacurrently reside with us here in Oxford. We spend most of the summer onHiggins Lake in northern Michigan enjoying all the water sports. Otherthan that, we enjoy our home on its five acres, spending time withfriends and family and volunteering our time at the Oxford AmericanLegion. I live by my mom’s motto (1952 Oxford High School graduate): “Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat!” Go Blue!
