This will be my first year at Bower Elementary School! Prior to working at Bower, I worked at Wheaton North High School for 2 years as a Licensed Teaching Assistant. I also worked in the Plainfield School District as a 4th and 5th grade Resource Teacher. I am very lucky to have worked at Bower for the last few weeks of the 2017-2018 school year and I cannot wait to begin my first full year here! I receieved my Undergraduate degree in HUman and Educational Services from Illinois State (GO BIRDS!) and my Masters in Special Education from Aurora University.
Outside of teaching, I am the head Cheerleading coach at Geneva High School and love being able to spend my days in the Elementary world and my nights in High School world. I just recently moved to Batavia and I spend my free time (the little that I have) catching up on Netflix shows and spending time with family and friends.
