Welcome to our class community! I have been teaching for 22 years (20 in second grade) and half of those years have been here at Union Academy.. I grew up in Centerville, Ohio just outside of Dayton and went to Purdue University for my degree in elementary education. I live in Matthews, NC with my husband, Scott, of 23 years and my two boys, David and Luke, and our sweet golden retriever/lab mix, Ginger. David just graduated from Butler High School and will attend UNCC in the fall where he will be enrolled in ROTC. My youngest son Luke will be a junior at Butler.

It is a privilege to teach at Union Academy. I firmly believe in the 3C's of character, community, and challenge and look forward to partnering with the families with whom we are blessed to work to help your children become the best version of themselves. In Schaytown, we build a strong sense of family and work to become responsible and respectful citizens, while having fun along the way! Our door is always open and we look forward to an awesome year! 



   I am married to a wonderful man named Billy and we have 2 girls, Amanda and Natalie.  My girls attend UA and we have been a  part of the UA family for 5 years now.  I am originally from New Orleans and moved here almost 13 years ago.  We love living here in Monroe.  I love being outside and enjoy watching my girls at their sporting events which takes up most of my  time.  I am so thrilled to be a teacher assistant at UA and to be working with Mrs. Schaefer and your children.
