Degrees and Certifications:
I am so happy to be a Lundahl Lion and be part of the 7 Gold Team! I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration/Marketing Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and a Masters Degree in Arts & Teaching from North Park University in Chicago, IL.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, John Nero, and have lived in Crystal Lake for 24 years. My husband and I have three children, Colt (24) who teaches and coaches at McHenry High School, Avalon (23) who recently graduated from Troy University in Troy, AL, and last but not least, Aurora (19), who is a sophomore at Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio. In my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends, playing and watching athletics, gardening, shopping, decorating, and enjoying a day at the beach.
My personal philosophy on life is to live each day to its fullest with a smile and a positive attitude. Life is what you make of it, and positivity is infectious. When it comes to teaching, I believe there is no job more important in the world than educating youth. It is my passion and my personal goal to positively impact each and every child that I have the privilege of working with so that they strive to achieve anything they want, feel successful, and have the power to pursue their lifelong dreams.
