The students in my class will be learning in many different ways, because we all learn differently. We will do a lot of reading, writing, and math computation, but we will learn in a way that works best for your child. We will integrate drawing, singing, technology, games, and movement into our classroom everyday. Learning should be fun and school should be a place students look forward to being.

Favorite Thing About Teaching:
I love everything about teaching. I enjoy the smiles, hugs and kind words that second graders give me everyday. I come to work to happy children everyday. Children who are excited to learn. I love knowing that I make a difference, and that I can help make lives better. I truly believe I have the best career in the world! Some people may teach for a living, but I live to teach.
I love reading and hanging out with my family, my 8 year old son, my husband and my little dog.
I grew up in New Lenox and went to District 122. My family lives in the area. My son is 8 years old. I tell him to have a great day at school each day. I know what it is like to send your baby off to school and really hope he is having a great day. I hope he is learning, but I also hope that he is safe, and he's being treated with respect and kindness. I hope that he feels that he is an important part of his class. My goal is that every child in our classroom is treated with kindness and respect, that they are having fun while learning, and that he/she feels like they are an important member of the class.
