About Me...


I am so happy to be teaching first grade.  I have lived in New Lenox for almost 15 years.  My husband's name is Jim and we have 3 boys, Ryan, Jacob and Patrick.  Ryan is a sophomore at West, Jacob is an 8th grader at Liberty and Patrick is a 3rd grader at Prairie.  This is my second 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 that AH-HA moment when their eyes light up.  It makes me smile when my students help each other and are kind to one another.
