In addition to being a wife and mom to two adorable (and semi-sassy kids)...I've been a 1st grade teacher, Reading Specialist, University Instructor and Freelance Literacy Consultant.
Committed to learning and growing together in an environment that accepts, honors and celebrating everyone.
Working with kids is reward enough for me!
Bachelor's Degree from University of WI-Madison; Master's Degree from University of WI-Milwaukee
