Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with middle school endorsements in Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies
Welcome to 7th grade life science!! I'm looking forward to meeting you all and making this the best school year yet!
I earned my Bachelor's in Elementary Education from Western Illinois University in 2012 with middle school endorsements in Science, Language Arts, and Social Studies. I am currently enrolled at Olivet Nazarene University, working on my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and only have a few classes left! I also coach cheerleading at South High School.
When I am not teaching or coaching, I am probably doing some wedding planning. Gil and I are getting married on New Year's Eve of this year, so there is much to do! I also like to do small projects around our house. We have many of the big projects done, but there it seems that the list is never-ending! If I am not working on the house, I am cuddling with our 9 month old kittens named Edith and Susan. They are sisters, but look nothing alike - one is a tortishell and the other is all black. Some of my other hobbies include playing sand volleyball, skiing/snowboarding, reading, and doing anything crafty.
This is my fourth year here at Lundahl, and I am beyond excited to get started with the new school year. I am very passionate about teaching and love what I do, and I believe that my enthusiasm spills over to my students and encourages them to become lifelong learners. I am looking forward to a very fun-filled 2019-2020 school year!
