Degrees and Certifications:
Thank you for visiting my website. I have been a Glacier Ridge Polar Bear since 2002 and have taught second, third, and fourth grades. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign as well as a Master's Degree from National-Louis University with a focus in Curriculum and Instruction.
Please know that I take my role as an educator very seriously. I do my best each and every day to teach, motivate, and encourage your child to work to their fullest potential. In addition to teaching the curriculum, my goal is to help inspire your child to become a good citizen and a lifelong learner. In order to assist our second grader along this challenging path, we as parents and teachers must communicate and work together. I invite you to get involved in your child’s learning in any way you deem appropriate. I look forward to collaborating with you in pursuit of developing your child’s academic and social skills.
Most of my communication with you will be through email and our Seesaw Learning Journal. We will discuss more of this at Parent Night in September. I look forward to meeting you then!
