I have been teaching at Lincolnivew Schools since the 1994-95 school year when I was hired to teach Spanish in the high school. Later, I taught junior high math and am currently teaching ELA and Spanish in the junior high. I grew up in Edgerton, Ohio as a Bulldog and attended Bluffton College for my bachelor's degree in education. I obtained my master's degree through Bowling Green University. I have been married for 26 years to my husband, Daryl. He is from Painesville, Ohio and we met at Bluffton. He works as a director at Ridgeview Behavioral Hospital. We have two children, Calista and Justis. Calista is married to Mitchell Altenburger and they have a little girl named Shalie. Calista works as a service and support administrator at Blanchard Valley Center in Findlay. Justis is finishing a degree in business and sports management at Bluffton University and will be a captain on the basketball team this year. Family is everything to us!
