Hello and welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I am thrilled to be in my sixth year at Ellis! I will be supporting students as a Reading Specialist.
I attended Roosevelt University in Chicago for my undergraduate degree, where I earned my bachelor's in Elementary Education with a Special Education endorsement. Following that, I received my ESL endorsement from the College of Lake County in 2013. In May of 2016, I graduated from Concordia University Chicago where I earned my master's degree in Reading & Literacy. Currently, I currently attend Northeastern Illinois University. I am working towards earning my second master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Administration.
Currently, I live in Wonder Lake with my fiance Kevin, and our puppy Marley. Traveling, reading, drawing, hiking and playing softball are just a few of my hobbies. I love to be outside in the sun! Snoopy and Woodstock are my favorite characters. They can be found in different places around my office.
This will be a fantastic year! I look forward to sharing my love of learning with your children everyday! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
