Bachelors degree in elementary education from Augustana College
I am so excited you are here to learn more about myself inside the classroom and outside of the classroom as well! I grew up in Glen Ellyn, just next door to Wheaton! I attended the Glen Ellyn schools & went on to attend high school at St. Francis High School right here in Wheaton. Throughout my life as a student, I had several wonderful teachers who inspired me to become an educator, including my very own third grade teacher! I then attended Augustana College near the Quad Cities where I student taught a fourth grade classroom in Bettendorf, Iowa & earned my bachelors degree in elementary education. For the past year, I taught fourth grade in Quincy, Illinois which is about five hours southwest of Wheaton! I am thrilled to be back in Wheaton and at Longfellow teaching third grade this year with all of you!
When I am not teaching, graduating or learning in a classroom you might find me diving into a good book or spending time with my family and friends! My mom & dad reside in Glen Ellyn with our dog Tally. My brother made the move to Chicago to become a pilot for SkyWest airlines. I also love to photograph, so you might find me taking long walks and searching for beautiful sights to photograph! I love Dr. Seuss, the color purple, chips & guacamole and of course, teaching!
I am excited to have each and every one of my students and parents in my classroom this year. It will be a great year full of learning, challenges, successes and fun!
