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 & Freelance Literacy Consultant.
Committed to learning & growing together in an environment that accepts, honors & 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
