Thank you for your interest in the programs we offer at our Cedar Street Campus. I have worked for Paw Paw Public Schools for the past 13 years. Prior to this school year, I worked at the high school as an English teacher and then academic advisor. I have served as building school improvement chair, English curriculum chair and an advisor for the National Honor Society. I am currently serving as the Interim Community Education Director for the Cedar Street Campus and am enjoying new challenges.
I graduated from Otsego High School and then attended Western Michigan University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in sociology, a Bachelor of Arts in secondary education, English, and communications and a Master of Arts in educational leadership. I have coached sideline and competitive cheer for over 25 years. I coached five years for my alma mater, WMU, before leaving to start the competitive cheer program at Paw Paw. I am married to Brian and we have three beautiful daughters.
I am excited to be in a learning environment that is able to provide students support and flexibility to grow. The staff at Cedar Street is truly commited to meeting the needs of every student. Our early education programs are designed to help prepare our little learners for elementary school and beyond. B.A.S.E. is before and after school care for elementary aged childred who attend Paw Paw Schools. This service is provided to offer families onsite child care at the Later Elementary. Our high school program provides blended learning with teacher-led and online courses to meet the requirements of the Michigan Merit Curriculum and students earn a high school diploma from Paw Paw Public Schools. High school students are also able to take advantage to all the career opportunities available at the Van Buren Tech Center. We also provide GED and diploma completion services for adults, 18 years and older, at our location at Freshwater Church.
