Degrees and Certifications:
The 2017-2018 school year was my first year of teaching. Three years ago I decided to leave my career as an event planner and started to substitute teach. I loved it so much that I decided to pursue my passion by going back to school and getting a degree in Elementary Education. It was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. On a personal note, my husband, Jordan, and I have 3 kids. My son, Jacob, is currently serving with the Illinois National Guard, my daughter, Cassidy, is a Junior at Crystal Lake South and my daughter, Carly is an 8th grader at Lundahl Middle School. All of my kids attended Indian Prairie from Kindergarten-5th grade, so I felt right at home when I made the transition from parent to employee at this amazingly welcoming school! In my "spare time" I love spending time with my family, entertaining in my home, reading and traveling (preferably to the ocean). I was an ELL teacher here, at Indian Prairie, for 2 years and this is my first year teaching 3rd grade!! I am so excited for this new adventure and look forward to a year of teaching and learning from your children!!
