About Me...


I am so happy to be back teaching first grade this year.  I have lived in New Lenox for almost 14 years.  My husband's name is Jim and we have 3 boys, Ryan, Jacob and Patrick.  Ryan is a freshman at West, Jacob is a 7th grader at Liberty and Patrick is a 2nd grader at Prairie.  This is my first year at Nelson Prairie.  Last year, I subbed in this district and am excited to have my very own classroom.  I absolutely love watching kids problem solve and have that AH-HA moment when their eyes light up.  It makes me smile when kiddos help each other and are kind to one another.
