Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to my bio here you can learn a little more about me! I have been teaching since 2011 and truly love my job. I spent the first half of my career as an 8th grade learning specialist, then taught as a Cross-Categorical self-contained middle school special education teachers at Bernotas Middle School.
I am now the fourth and fifth grade grade teacher for the cross-categorical program at Indian Prairie Elementary School and love every minute!
I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Learning Behavior Specialist degree to teach students kindergarten through age 21. I went on to receive a Masters in Reading from Olivet Nazarene University with a Reading Specialist endorsement.
Outside of teaching, I live in Woodstock with my husband and my dog. We love the small town charm of the square and walking to the farmer’s markets. Our boxer, Luna, keeps us busy and outdoors as much as possible. My husband is also an educator at Cary-Grove high school. We spend extra time with our family and friends.
