Hi! I have been a teacher for 12 years, all of them spent in New Lenox. After many years as a classroom teacher, I made a big jump into the role of reading specialist. I continue to learn about how to best support not only our students, but teachers and parents.

Favorite Thing About Teaching:
Kindergarten students experience huge leaps in learning. Everyday there are "lightbulb" moments when they realize the potential they possess. Getting to share in a child's first moment of reading is a privilege that I am so grateful to enjoy.
I have traveled to 49 of the 50 states and love to read.
