Welcome to 5th grade and room 17! I am very excited to be teaching your child! I have been teaching for 24 years in Round Lake. I wanted to share a little about myself. I am a graduate of Round Lake High School, Magee Middle School (before the school was rebuilt) and Ellis Elementary School! After high school, I went to Northern Illinois University to study Education. I also have 2 masters degrees from National Louis University, one in Curriculum and Instruction and one in Administration.
After college, I got married and started my family. I have been married 24 years and have 2 children. My daughter is 23 years old, and has her first teaching job at Emmons in Antioch. My son is 20 years old and a sophomore at Illinois State University. I will miss him so much as he has a great personality! We also have a dog, yellow lab, named Cooper. He is 7 years old and is very active. As a family, we enjoy playing games together, sharing stories of our day and going on vacation.
I love teaching! I am excited every year to meet my students, learn about them and watch them grow over the year. They are full of energy and ideas! I am also excited to work with parents. There are many ways we can work together to make sure the kids are exceeding in school and following their dreams.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Everyone is welcome to visit our class, volunteer or help with activities.
