Welcome to our fifth grade class! I have been a teacher at Jahn for many years, and have loved being a part of this learning community. I have my masters in Education from DePaul University, and a certificate in bilingual education. I am fluent in Spanish, and love Latin American history and culture. I am a mother to almost five-year-old twin boys, who are the loves of my life. Becoming a mom forever changed my perspective on my students and my job as an educator. I see each child before me as unique and deserving of my time and dedication.
