Welcome to my Kindergarten Classroom!  I am a 5th year teacher; new to District 200.  I love children, teaching, and learning. 

Here are some fast facts about me:


- My son Benjamin is 2.5 years old and he loves trucks, construction vehicles, Paw Patrol, and Thomas the Train.

- I went to Wheaton College (Education) and Loyola University Chicago (Theater).

- I taught in Africa for 2 years.

- I love traveling; I have visited Canada, Germany, Spain, Italy, Rwanda, Tanzania, Cambodia, and Thailand.

- My favorite hobbies are playing with Benjamin, gardenning, bike riding, going to Church, reading books, and spending time with my friends.


I am so excited to be at Whittier and teach your students.


We will have a Kickin' Kindergarten Year!
