I am so excited to become a Decatur Raider! I can already see that this is a community-supported school district that is working to make a positive impact.
I have been a middle school math teacher for almost ten years – first at Trinity Lutheran School in Paw Paw, then at Linden Grove Middle School. It is my passion. I believe that every child has the capability to grow and make a positive step in life, and I aim to carry that belief into the classroom every day.
I am a graduate of Western Michigan University (Bachelors Degree) and Michigan Technological University (Masters Degree). My husband, Josh Ernstes is also a Raider, teaching Biology this year. We have a three year old son, Jacob, who is absolutely the love of our lives. The three of us share a love of all sports. We are die hard Michigan fans! Jacob has especially enjoyed watching the Raiders play basketball while his dad coaches.
