Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Crystal Lake School District 47’s self-contained cross categorical classroom (AKA cross-cat). I am very excited to be teaching this program for my 8th year. I have 20 years teaching experience and have been in District 47 since 2008. Before teaching Cross-Cat I taught the District's Oasis Program.
I live in the community with my son and daughter. Being a parent of school age children, I understand the school-home dynamic and value your family time and experiences. In addition to teaching the curriculum this year, my goal is to create a classroom environment of trust, inspiration, and care. I believe the key to this is positive communication back and forth between home and school. I look forward to hearing from you and collaborating consistently regarding your child’s development, strengths, and needs.
