In 2009, I earned my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a Music Minor from Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois. I have an Illinois Type 03 teaching certification and endorsements in music, language arts and social sciences.
When I am not teaching I enjoy sewing, crocheting, and reading. I also enjoy gardening during the warmer months of the year and love to travel.
