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 love!
Joliet Junior College and Governor's State University. I also attended Northern Illinois University.
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! It may sound corny, but it's true.
I love reading and hanging out with my family. I love going places with my husband, my 10 year old son and our little dog, Toby. We love hanging out with our extended family. My mom, sister, brother, and all of their kiddos live in the area. We also like traveling out west to visit my husband's family.
I grew up in New Lenox and went to District 122. My family lives in the area. My son is 10 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 likes an important citizen in his class. My goal is that every child in our classroom is being treated with kindness and respect, that they are having fun while learning, and that he/she is feeling like they are an important member of the class.
