I grew up in Rockford, Il and currently live in Algonuin. I always wanted to be a teacher and I have always loved to read. I received my bachelor's degree from Rockford College in 2002 and after teaching kindergarten for two years decided to return to school. I received my master's in reading from Rockford College in 2008 and received my reading specialist in 2012 followed by my ESL endorsement. This is my 6th year at Indian Hill.
