I am proud to say that I have been working here at GRCC since 1992. I earned my Associate Degree in Child Development from this college and then went on to earn my Bachelor's in Family Studies from Central Michigan University and my Early Childhood Master's Degree from Western Michigan University. I began my career here at GRCC working in our GRCC Laboratory Preschool in the 4 year old classroom before moving into a full-time teaching position in the Education/Child Development department. I enjoy teaching a both levels. It is amazing to watch young children learn and discover new things but it is just as exciting watch new teachers gain confidence in their skills.
