I graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education. I have had the pleasure of teaching in the district since 2006. I started my career in the Pre-K classroom helping our youngest learners get off to a great start in school. I am currently teaching First grade. I enjoy watching how much my students grow throughout the first grade year. When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a 2 year old son who keeps me very busy at home!
