and Social Studies - Nelson Ridge
I have been teaching in the New Lenox School District for 19 years. I started at Nelson Ridge when the school opened in 1999. I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in Teaching and Leadership from St. Xavier University.
Besides staying busy with my family and teaching, I also am the Head Varsity Badminton Coach at Andrew High School. I have been coaching for 20 years and love it!
Favorite thing about Teaching:
Family: I am married to my husband, John, and we have 2 children. Our son, Brecken is 7 1/2 years old and in 2nd grade, and our daughter, Annika is 6 years old and in 1st grade.
We love spending time together! We enjoy being outdoors, playing sports together, going on fun and adventurous outings, playing board games, doing puzzles, and going to the movies. We love to travel and spend our summers in Michigan at our cottage.
