Greetings! I am so excited to be joining the team of amazing educators working with the families and students at The Phoenix International High School. I've been learning so much in recent weeks and am thrilled to begin working with you as your History and Government teacher.
I grew up in the Columbus, Ohio area and graduated from Whitehall-Yearling High School. Following high school I ventured north to attend Bowling Green State University where I prepared to become a Social Studies Teacher for students in grades 7-12. I earned my Master's Degree in Education from the University of Dayton in 2001 and became a Licensed School Counselor.
I have worked in various educational capacities and environments. I have worked as an educational assistant in a preschool class, and a Case Manager in an educational research project with The Ohio State University. I've taught American History, World History, Psychology, and Service Learning at the high school level in Finneytown and Wilmington. I have also worked as the School Counselor at Lebanon Christian School (K-8), and Clinton-Massie High School. I am thrilled to be working with your students to help prepare them to be knowledgable and responsible members of our community!
Personally I am happily married to Luke Milton. He owns Vision House Studio, a production company. Together we have four children, two boys and two girls. The oldest attend college at the University of Cincinnati and the University of Louisville, while the younger two are a junior attending Sinclair and Lebanon High School, and a 5th grader at Berry Intermediate School. We also have the joy of caring for 3 large chocolate labs.... long story....
Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with questions or concerns. I'm partnering with you! So I need your involvement!
Thank you in advance!
