“Words are our most inexhaustible source of magic.”

~Albus Dumbledore

This is my fourth year teaching 5th grade at DeVaney elementary. I graduated in 2019 from Indiana State University with a degree in Elementary Education. My husband Chad and I have two little boys of our own named Pierson and Sawyer. I enjoy reading and traveling and I hope to share my passion for both with your student!
