Graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with an Early Childhood. I have taught Young Fives, elementary and special education in Michigan and Florida, as well as managing and directing at Camp Mirage for over 10 years! If there is a job with kids, I have probably worked it! I have a little dog and I love to travel all over the world. I am trying to check all the national parks off my bucket list! I am full of positive energy and ready to assist all of the littles and families of the Learning Express!
Teacher, Three's Classroom
I have been teaching the three’s classes since 2016 and I have loved every minute of it! I have four children, dogs, and occasionally a litter of foster kitties. I am a huge sports fan and enjoy attending Lions games! I am excited to engage in meaningful experiences to help our littles make friends, grow emotionally, and begin their academic journey!
Teacher, Four's Classroom
I completed undergraduate work at the University of Tampa and split my time between teaching and working as an ER nurse! I have taught the four’s classes and spent the last few summers managing the Juniors at Camp Mirage. I love fitness, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. I am eager to help the littles of the Learning Express build strong foundations and develop a love of learning!
Teacher, Four's Classroom
I graduated with a bachelor's degree from Eastern Michigan University and have been at The Learning Express since 2016. I am married and enjoy being a mom to two daughters. When I’m not in the classroom, I like bike riding, music, reading, and spending time with family and friends at our cottage on Burt Lake! I truly enjoy helping young minds explore and grow by giving children control of the learning environment and nurturing their individuality through fun experiences!
Teacher, Five's Classroom
I have a degree in Elementary Education focusing on Early Childhood and Child Development. Since I began teaching in 2007, I have taught a variety of levels ranging from 3-year-old preschool to 8th grade! I am married and a proud mom to two amazing boys who keep me busy. I love being outside, camping, and spending time with friends and family. My heart has always been in early childhood education I love to help each student learn in the way that works best for them and am inspired by their kind and creative minds!
