I have taught Physical Education and Life Skills at Simpson Middle School for 18 years. I graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a bachelors degree in Physical Education and a minor in Health Education. I went back to EMU and completed my Masters program in Physical Education. I love spending time with my family, all sports and The University of Michigan. I have a beautiful yellow lab named Bailey. I do not have kids of my own :0( But, Fortunately I do have two Nieces that go to Gibraltar schools, Marissa and Jessica. We spend a lot of time together going to University of Michigan sporting events, Girls Night Out and Detroit Tiger games.
