Welcome to EL!
Teaching English Learners in CUSD 200 has been my passion for 12 years! I have been a Sandburger for nine years! Previously I taught at Washington and Lowell Schools. I have a Master of Arts in Teaching and a B.S. in journalism. On a personal note, my husband Ken and I have three grown children, Ross, Grant and Liz, and a delightful toddler grandson, Oliver! In my free time, I enjoy laughing with and chasing Ollie, reading, traveling and going to movies and plays. I am excited about another new school year and the opportunity to serve the children and families of Sandburg Elementary School!
This is my 14th year in the district teaching Second Language Learners. Before joining the Sandburg family, I taught at Lincoln Elementary. I have a masters in Curriculum and Instruction as well as in Reading. When I am not teaching, I enjoy traveling, reading and everything outdoors. I have been married for over 30 years to my wonderful husband Bill. Our son Preston is a Civil Engineer and our daughter Amanda works in marketing. I am very proud of my family. I look forward to a year of growth for both myself and your children.
