I am starting my 3rd year as a 5th Grade General Education Teacher. I teach everything except Social Studies. Reading and Science are my two loves to teach! I am fortunate enough to be teaching partners with the amazing teacher that I got to student teach with. 5th Grade is truly a hidden gem!
I am a constructivist thinking, 5th Grade teacher that loves getting my students in the teaching role! It not only makes it easier for me when I give them responsibility in their learning, but it helps me grow as a teacher when I learn from their amazing presenting and teaching skills! I am definitely teaching to learn!

I attended Lake Land College, in Mattoon, IL, where I earned my Associate in Applied Science of Elementary Education. I then transferred to Greenville University, in Greenville, IL, where I received my Bachelor in Applied Science of Elementary Education K-9.
I met my best friend, counselor, psychiatrist, cheerleader, biggest supporter, and husband at Greenville University. Deonte has been my biggest ally as I started my teaching career right out of college. I owe much thanks to his patience and understanding as I learned to juggle life, marriage, and school!
