Welcome to North Woods Career Prep! I hope you join us on your journey to earning your high school diploma.

I have been a teacher at Career Prep Columbus North for 16 years, and I enjoy seeing students gain confidence and believe that they can do this...they can graduate. Reaching this goal is as easy as coming to school and doing your best. Put in the time and effort and be confident that I will assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

I have a bachelor’s degree in English Education and Sociology (grades 7-12) from Bowling Green State University. Though some students enjoy English, I am well aware that many do not like to read and/or write, so my job is rather challenging. However, I am up for the challenge and will do my best to guide my students through the courses and try to make it as enjoyable and painless as possible!

I have been married for many years and have two grown sons who are both graduates of Ohio State University. My main hobby is reading, of course, but I also enjoy cooking, baking, spending time with family and friends, watching movies, going for walks (when the weather is acceptable), and occasional craft projects.

In summary, teaching is a rewarding profession. Building relationships with students and staff is important to me and is what has kept me here for so many years. I truly enjoy working with students, getting to know them, and trying my best to make a difference and help them reach their goals. I have worked with many staff members over the years; they also really care about our students.

Please stop and see me if you are visiting North Woods Career Prep!
