I have worked in education for over 15 years, the last 9 as a homeschool parent. I have taught at a local homeschool co-op for over 7 years (in person and online) . I started my schooling with a B.B.A. from Northwood University. After several years in the corporate climate I decided to go back to school to get a teaching degree. I attended Eastern Michigan University and finished my classes and testing required for the teaching degree. The semester I was to start student teaching one of my children became seriously ill. Once they were recovered I was starting to homeschool my children and never went back to finish the program. 
 
I have continued to attend teacher professional developments including:
EdCamp - EMU
NerdCamp - Parma
NaNoWriMo - Online, and local events
Others offered at EMU and MSU 
4-H STEAM Programs with MSU
