Currently living the dream as a librarian, media specialist, STEM teacher, tech enthusiast, and makerspace manager! Loved my 6th grade classroom for 4 years and now LOVING this new adventure!
I truly believe in preparing my students for their higher education, the working world, and life in general. I think that one of the most valuable things I can teach them is to work cooperatively with others. Cooperative learning is a staple in my classroom.
I have earned my degree from Illinois State University in Elementary Education. My endorsements include reading, language arts, Spanish, social sciences, and science. Masters in Teacher Leadership.
My students would describe me as organized, creative, color obsessed, and a teacher who absolutely LOVES to laugh with her students.
