About Me
I have been teaching elementary school children for over 20 years. Prior to teaching at Avoca West, I taught three years at East School in Lake Bluff, Illinois and one year at St. Alphonsus School in Chicago. I'm a Dixon, Illinois native and went to college at Illinois State University. I have a Bachelor's in Elementary Education and have completed my Master's degree in Teaching and Leadership at St. Xavier University. I recently completed my reading teacher endorsement at National Louis University. I love teaching and learning.

Statement of Philosophy
My philosophy of education is that all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential. I will provide a safe environment where students are invited to share their ideas and take risks.
