Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 5th grade! I am really excited to be teaching fifth grade again this year, seeing familiar faces, and meeting new students and parents alike. I have had the pleasure of working in Indian Prairie for the last eight years, the last five years as a fifth-grade teacher, the year prior a Title One Interventionist and prior to that student teaching in third grade. I completed my undergraduate degree in English from Western Illinois University in 1994 and in 2013 I earned my Master of Arts Degree in Elementary Education.
My husband of almost 21 years, John, is an elementary school principal and is not only a loving and supportive husband but a father to our two children as well. Our son Justin is going to be a sophomore at Western Illinois University this year and our daughter Amanda will be a junior at Huntley High School. When we are not watching our son play football or our daughter cheer, we love spending time together as a family traveling and going on extreme adventures.
