About Me...

 GetAttachment-4.aspx.jpeg

I have had the pleasure of teaching in many different situations.  In the past I was a second grade classroom teacher, I have taught private piano lessons, and I have provided homebound instruction.  I love my current job teaching ESL students in New Lenox.  I am inspired by their eagerness to learn and I like finding ways to help them overcome the language barrier.  I have taught students in many New Lenox schools.  Currently I am teaching at Haines, Nelson Prairie, Spencer Pointe, and Spencer Crossing schools.
