I have been teaching for 18 years and love it! I believe that our kids are worth every minute of the planning, the spending, and the time and love we teachers give each and everyday!
I am a hands on teacher who mixes it up as often as I can. My students do not stay in their seats and know I am their biggest advocate. I believe in continuing to grow as a teacher from the amazing teachers around me and through advanced education!
The awards I have earned come in the form of parent thank you cards, hugs and smiles from my 7 and 8 year olds, and a happy heart!
I have a Bachelor's degree in elementary education with a minor in art and a middle school endorsement. I also have a Master's degree in curriculum and instruction and am continuing my education through additional online courses.
I am a mother of two beautiful daughters and have an amazing husband! I live in northern Illinois!
