This is my first year teaching 6th grade here at Western. I teach Language Arts and Social Studies. I am blessed to be teaching with Mrs. Heather Mullins, who teaches Science and Math. My previous teaching experience has been at Parma Elementary in 4th grade, as well as Bean Elementary in 3rd grade. I am married to Terry French, and we are both Western alumni. We have three sons who are students here at Western. I was a stay-at-home mom and re-entered the schools in 2010 as a Literacy coach for Mrs. Kristen Rice. This is my first year back full-time into the classroom after my leave, and I am so excited to be at the Middle school. I feel very much at home here.
