Life got started for me when I was born in the city of Iron Mountain, MI. I grew up in the city of Norway, MI, right along the Michigan-Wisconsin border. Although I always thought I lived in the center of the U.P., I found out when I moved east that I was a West Ender. Perhaps I have been around long enough, because not as many people call me that anymore!
I graduated from Northern Michigan University with a double major in Social Studies and English. In 2011, I completed my Master's degree in Education Administration & Supervision. I joined the staff at Pickford High School in the middle of the 2008-2009 school year.
My major interests are history, politics, movies, well written television shows, reading, writing, and football- Go Bengals!
