I have a bachelor's in Elementary Education,  Middle School Science, and Language Arts Education from Ball State University. I also have a Masters of Arts in Secondary Education from Ball State University. Recently, I became an ROI STEM Fellow as well!

I love to spend time outside in the garden, hiking in the woods, cooking, baking, quilting, watching movies, playing games, spending time with family and friends, photography, and traveling!

I'm married to Mr. Clinton Burch, the 11th grade US History/12th Grade Economics teacher.  We have 3 daughters. our oldest will be 6 years old this fall, and the twins will be 4 years old this spring. 


We also have 1 dog, Rosie, and 2 cats, Max and Ruby.
