First and foremost .... I love teaching! I have been teaching for l8 years and have spent most of them in first grade. I decided to challenge myself a few years ago by teaching sixth grade. I learned a lot about myself as a teacher during that time, but most importantly I learned that I am meant to teach the primary grades. I have my Master's degree in Teaching and Learning, but I must admit that most of what I learn comes from the boys and girls that I get to spend my day with.
Started Working at NLSD:
I am happily married to my husband Tom. Together we have 2 beautiful daughters ... Madelyn (9) and Macy (7). We also have a furry baby named Wrigley. We are avid Cubs fans and are so proud to have seen them with the World Series.
Favorite Thing About Teaching:
My students of course! I love all the personalities that fill my room everyday. Every student has a different life experience and different ideas that make our classroom unique.
