Degrees and Certifications:
I'm excited to begin my 14th year of teaching and my 5th year at W.C. Petty. Prior to District 34, I worked in Mundelein schools. There I taught as an ELL resource teacher, 4-5 multi-age teacher, 4th grade teacher and 3rd grade teacher. I have enjoyed every position and grade level that I have taught so far.
I grew up in Columbus, Indiana and teaching is my second career. I have my Bachelor's degree from Purdue University in Mangagment. I worked as a department manager for a few years then decided to go back to school for education. In 2005, I received my Master's degree in Education from Indiana Univerisity.
I live in Lake Villa with my husband Matt, and my two children Ian (17) and Amelia (13). My son is a Senior at Lakes High School and my daughter is in 8th grade at AUGS. We also have a spunky rat terrier named Edison.
I am very excited to start the school year!
