About Me...

 I have experience teaching Second Grade in Frankfort Square and Pre-K in Joliet.  As well as,  the amazing opportunity to take time away from teaching to raise my own children. Last year, I was a substitute teaching for 5 different school districts.  This is when I discovered Spencer Campus.  I absolutely fell in love with everything about NLSD! Great teachers, friendly staff, a great community and students who were excited about learning.  I knew this was the right place and perfect fit for me! I am so excited to be sharing your child's first school experiences with you.

My family means the world to me. I am happily married to my high school sweetheart (who grew up on Spencer Rd). We have been married 24 years and have two great kids. Andrew is 19 and off to his first year away to college, UWM! Grace is 11 and starting Middle School this year, lots of BIG changes for our family in 2018. We love traveling and spending time together.  Our home also has two pets, a 16 year old Lhasa poo named Lily and a tortoise named Morty.
