Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 5th grade! I am excited to be here at Indian Prairie. The school, the community, and the families here make this my dream job! Teaching is truly my passion and I have been doing it in one form or another since I graduated from Ripon College in Wisconsin in 1995. I started my career teaching 3rd grade in France, then taught English as a second language. I lived and taught in Paris for seven years but eventually moved back to Algonquin Illinois. Once stateside I started teaching French but quickly realized how much I missed elementary school teaching. I went back to University to earn my Master's degree in Education and have been in 5th grade ever since.
