• Welcome to the 2024-25 School Year!

    Welcome to Edgewood Elementary. I have worked for Michigan City Area Schools for the last twenty years as a classroom teacher and instructional coach.  I graduated from Purdue University Northwest with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. After five years of teaching, I went back to Purdue Northwest and attained my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction.  In the spring of 2018, I enrolled at Ball State University to attain my administration license.

    I look forward to working closely with students, families, staff, and the community to ensure academic success for all students.  I know that the collaboration of all will bring great success to our students. We have many partnerships, some of which include: All Pro Dads, Fathers and Father Figures Being Involved Organization, and connections with Jo-Ann Fabrics and Kohls.  Edgewood’s staff prides themselves in making strong connections with our stakeholders and community organizations. In addition, we have the Edgewood School Association that support monthly, family nights and many building-wide initiatives. Edgewood also partners with Valparaiso University as a practicum site for teacher candidates studying elementary education. We are always welcoming more parents and community volunteers to join our team.

    This year is going to be fabulous!  I could not be more thrilled to lead the Edgewood Crew!

    Educationally yours,
