B.S. in Education from Valparaiso University
Masters in Reading from Governors State University
Previous Work Experience:
I began my teaching career in Griffith, Indiana. My first class were kindergarteners. I have also taught fourth grade, fifth grade and (of course) first grade. I love seeing a student grow in his or her reading ability.
I think everyone everywhere should take the responsibility to learn a little every day.
I have loads of fun with my two grandchildren, Pacey and Gracie. I take several yoga/Pilates classes weekly, and I love my yellow bike!
Another activity that keeps me busy is serving on the board of my church's school.
My Favorite Quote:

My Favorite Book:
I always enjoy reading Charlotte's Webto my class. It's a wonderful story about friendship.
