I am so happy to be teaching first grade. I have lived in New Lenox for almost 16 years. My husband's name is Jim and we have 3 boys, Ryan, Jacob and Patrick. Ryan is a junior and Jacob is a freshman at West, and Patrick is a 4th grader at Nelson Ridge. This is my third year at Nelson Prairie. I love teaching first grade and absolutely love watching my students grow into beautiful confident flowers! It makes me happy when kids problem solve and have those AH-HA moments when their eyes light up. It makes me smile when my students help each other and are kind to one another.
