This will be my tenth year of teaching kindergarten at Spaulding. I love teaching kindergarten because I have the opportunity to be a child's first teacher and create a foundation and passion for learning. Kindergarten is not only about learning new skills, but learning to be kind and a good friend. Everyday we work on being respectful, responsible, productive, and safe.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education degree from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I have endorsements in Language Arts, Middle School Education, and English as a Second Language. I recently completed my Master of Arts degree in Educational Technology Leadership at Concordia University Chicago.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband of 24 years, Jim, and my two children. My son, Payton, is majoring in engineering at the University of Alabama and my daughter, Ashley, is completing her master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology at Marquette University. We have a maltipoo named Ella and we just adopted a brand new Goldendoodle puppy. We love the Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks, and of course the World Series Champion Cubs.
