|I am an alumnus of Beaverton High School. After high school graduation, I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from Spring Arbor College. After college graduation, I returned to the Beaverton area and worked as a Systems Administrator for Homestead Products for 10 years. Training others to use computer systems was the most enjoyable part of my position, so I chose to continue my education and obtain a teaching certificate.
In 1993, I earned a teaching certificate in Business Education with an emphasis in Accounting from Central Michigan University (CMU); I earned my Masters in Business Education from CMU in May 1999. I taught at Mid Michigan Community College before coming to Beaverton High School. Currently, I teach Accounting I & II, Business Information & Technology II, Business Management, Senior Advisory, and am a Business Professionals of America advisor.
My family is really important to me and has been a huge support in my career. I've been married to Tim for over 30 years. We met at Spring Arbor University and have two sons. Jarred is married to Tabitha and practices dentistry in the Kalamazoo area. My son Zach died in 2009. Not a day goes by he isn't on my mind. This winter, I will become a grandmother for the first time. An additional member of our family is our dog Cali. She is a beagle and has a pretty easy life.
