I have had the privilege of teaching in the Communication Development Program (CDP) at Bernotas since 2008. I earned my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Evansville (Indiana) and my Master’s degree from National Louis University (Illinois). I began my teaching career at Countryside Elementary School in Barrington Hills and was fortunate to be able to then take a 10 year hiatus to focus on my family before returning to teaching at Bernotas.
My home life is rarely quiet! My husband John and I have 4 fascinating children who keep us pretty busy even as they grow older. We have three sons–Kamus, Ian, and Brendan–and one daughter–Kelsey. Their very diverse interests have guaranteed that I stay as much a learner as I am a teacher !
I truly enjoy my job, and I appreciate the opportunity to work with you. I am very proud of our CDP team and the joyful effort each of us puts forth to ensure the best educational opportunities for every one of our students.
