I grew up in New Lenox and graduated from Lincoln-Way Central. After finishing college, I moved to the Phoenix area. I spent three years in Arizona teaching 4th grade and then came back to my hometown. This is my seventh year teaching at Spencer Crossing. I am very fortunate to work with such wonderful teachers, students, and families!
10 years total; I have taught fourth, fifth, and sixth grades. Intermediate is where my heart is!

Favorite Thing About Teaching:
Getting to know my students and seeing them grow, change, and learn throughout the year.
- Running (especially with my husky/shepherd mix Maya)
- Spending time with my husband and twins who are 1 year old
- Watching the Cubs
