My love for Middleton started 17 years ago when I was studying to be a teacher and was placed at Middleton to do my final semester of student teaching. My husband, Brandon, and I have four kids that keep us very busy.  Our older two will be at Lake Middle School this year and our younger two will be at Middleton.  I enjoy teaching dance, substitute teaching, reading, knitting and camping with my family.  I'm looking forward to a great school year!
