This will be my tenth year teaching, six of which have been in kindergarten, and I will be looping up to first grade in the fall. I love everything about reading- sharing interactive read alouds, hearing my students grow confidence as "real" readers, and discussing books with colleagues and friends. Guiding my students to love books is my largest goal and proudest accomplishment with every class!
In my class, You. Will. Learn. I am strict (like, seriously, look at me and think "how is she a kindergarten teacher?"), but my classroom is warm and full of love. We laugh and have fun. We have real-world discussions and make connections. We work our behinds off.

I went to CPS schools from K-12. I strongly believe in public, urban education. It brought me to where I am today, and I can be that person to bring out the best in my students. I went to Loyola Chicago and got my B.S.Ed. in elementary education/ history. Master's coming soon!
