B.S. Education, Minor in English, Eastern Illinois University
M.A. in progress

I am excited for another amazing year of learning and growing in fourth grade!  Here's a little bit about me:

I grew up in Arlington Heights, IL, where I attended elementary, middle and high school.  I received my Bachelor of Science degree with a minor in English Literature from Eastern Illinois University in 1999 I am currently working on a Masters Degree.  I hold an Illinois elementary education teaching certificate with a middle school endorsement in language arts.  I began my teaching career in Buffalo Grove, IL at Tripp Elementary School.  After getting married and moving to Chicago, I taught 5th grade at Alexander G. Bell School.  I have been teaching at Jahn School since 2001!  

When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, tennis, skiing, international travel, going to the opera and playing with my three children.
