I attended Augustana College in Rock Island, IL from 2005-09 and earned my B.A. in Elementary Education with a minor in Spanish. In the summer of 2007, I studied abroad for 3 months in Cuenca, Ecuador, where I was fully immersed in the beautiful Latin American landscape and culture--where I truly learned my Spanish! At the end of my first year of teaching in 2009-10, I began taking graduate courses for my ESL/Bilingual Endorsement, which I completed in the summer of 2011. No sooner had I began my third year of teaching in a new district in a new position (ESL Teacher) than I enrolled in a Reading Specialist Cohort Program through Concordia University. I obtained my Masters in Reading (K-12) in 2013 and am endorsed as a Reading Specialist.
I am currently in my 6th year of teaching. I have been happily married to my husband since March 22, 2014.
