Degrees and Certifications:
I have been teaching for many years. The first five years were in Plainfield, IL, where I taught 2nd and 4th grades. When my first son was born, we relocated to be closer to family and I was lucky enough to be hired to teach 5th grade here at Indian Prairie. I spent 10 years in 5th grade before moving into my current position as the Extended Curriculum Facilitator during the 2014-2015 school year.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a master’s degree in Reading. I completed coursework to earn my Gifted Teaching Endorsement and most recently, earned my Middle School Teaching Endorsement in both Math and Language Arts! I love teaching and working with students in this specialized position where I strive to give all my learners opportunities to stretch their thinking and abilities!
