Degrees and Certifications:
I am so excited to join the Kindergarten at Pleviak staff and RLAS 116 district this year. I recently moved to the area with my husband after teaching for 7 years in the Chicago Public Schools. I have experience teaching kindergarten and second grade. I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Coe College in Cedar Rapids, IA. While teaching, I have received an endorsement in English as a Second Language, as well as certificates in Mindful Practices and Positive Discipline.
I am looking forward to a fantastic year teaching Project Lead the Way (PLTW). I am thrilled to use the design process this year, to guide students in hands-on and real world explorations. When not at school, I love to spend time with my dog, Junebug (June for short). I also love hiking, spending time outdoors, practicing yoga, hanging out with family, and cuddling up with a good book.
