Degrees and Certifications:
Too many years ago to mention, I graduated from Marquette University in Milwaukee and moved back home to Wonder Lake and began teaching sixth grade at West Elementary School. Who knew that thirty years later, I would still be teaching sixth-grade students in District 47, now at Lundahl Middle School! My name changed when I married my husband, Jack, and my hours of sleep dropped when our daughters, Tanya and Stephanie, were born (both now married). A mere six weeks ago, we welcomed our first grandchild, Emilia Grace. What a blessing she is and what a new adventure for us. However, I am still excited to head to work each Fall and meet new students (and possibly former students who are now parents themselves).
Now, Jack and I are officially empty-nesters. I don't think that I am a fan! However, I plan to spend more time on our family pastime of waterskiing. I also enjoy reading (that's good news since I teach language arts), music, family time, and playing with our extremely active beagle-shepherd mix, Brandy.
I believe that open communication and a sense of security are essential to a successful start to the school year, particularly for sixth-graders. Please contact me with any of your questions, concerns, or "need to know" information. Email correspondence will be the quickest form of communication, but I welcome phone and conference conversations, as well. Please refer to the following contact information:
