Welcome to EL!
Teaching English Learners in CUSD 200 has been my passion for 14 years! I have been a Sandburger for 10 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 live in Glen Ellyn. We have three grown children, Ross, Grant and Liz and two delightful toddler grandchildren, Oliver and Clara, who live in Naperville. In my free time, I enjoy playing with the kids, 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 15th 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 31 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.
