Education

I attended University of Illinois to receive a bachelors  degree in Consumer and Textile Marketing.  I then moved on to Olivet Nazarene University to get a Masters degree in Teaching.  I now have a second Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from American College of Education.  I like going to school :)



Experience

My first teaching experiences began in December of 2000 when I began subbing in the Manteno School district while I was getting my teaching degree.  I then student taught 7th grade Math under Mrs. Monk here at Manteno Middle School.  After student teaching I covered several maternity leaves at Manteno until I assumed my first full-time teaching experience at Peotone Junior High.  I taught 8th grade Math in Peotone for 7 years, and am glad to be back in Manteno teaching 6th grade Math and Social Studies.



Bio

I have lived in Manteno my entire life.  I love Manteno, and am excited to be raising my family in such a great town!  I live on a farm (with cows), with my 3 children and husband.
