I am currently in my 14th year of teaching full time. The first year I taught preschool and reading intervention for third and fourth graders. Starting my second year, I moved to my dream job: teaching kindergarten.
I believe that all students can learn and they learn at different levels and in different ways. I believe in first and foremost creating an emotionally safe environment for my students. When students feel safe in their setting, they can learn anything!
In 2011, I received National Board Certification.
I attended Lakeland College in Sheboygan, WI for my Bachelor's Degree, Lakeshore Techical College for my Early Childhood Certification, and Marian University for my Master's Degree.
I live with my wonderful and supportive husband and 2 beautiful daughters. My daughters attend the same school I teach and am so blessed for that. It's like taking your children to work with you every day! It is such a treat to see them and sneak in a hug or two from them.
