Mrs. Carpenter graduated from Tiffin University with a BA degree in hospitality management. She enjoyed working in Sandusky, University of Toledo, Museum of Natural History in Washington DC, and at Mohawk Golf Club in Tiffin. However, teaching became a passion. She earned a BA and Masters from BGSU in Curriculum and Teaching. She has enjoyed working at Otsego for the past 20 years; the first 17 in fourth grade. Sixth grade has been a fun change. She enjoys trying the recipes from the food channels. She and her husband enjoy worshiping at their church and love to watch sporting events, especially the Otsego Knights, BGSU Falcons and Michigan Wolverines.
