to First Grade! I am very excited to be your child’s teacher and look
forward to our year together! I am a resident of Rochester, Michigan and
a native of northern Illinois. I began my teaching career in 1994
working for the Peoria Public Schools in Peoria, Illinois teaching first
grade. During this time I served in many capacities: classroom teacher,
reading specialist, reading curriculum coordinator, and lead teacher. I
am a graduate of Illinois State University with a Bachelor of Science
degree in Elementary Education. Additionally, I have a Masters in
Reading and Literacy from Marygrove College. I want to make sure your
child feels respected, acknowledged, loved, and honored as a learner in
my classroom. I hope to impart upon your child my passion and desire to
be a lifelong learner.
I am not in school I am spending time with my husband and two boys. We
are typically busy with team sports such as baseball and swim team.
However, in my free moments I enjoy bike riding, reading a great book,
relaxing at the pool, or traveling.
