Here is a little background on me:
I grew up in the north suburbs and moved to the city after finishing my undergraduate work.
I graduated from National-Louis University with a degree in Elementary Education. I completed my master’s degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago to become a Reading Specialist. Additionally, I have an endorsement in English as a Second Language also from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
My classroom teaching experience includes teaching kindergarten, second grade, and fifth grade. I have also been an aide and substitute in CPS. This will be my sixth year teaching kindergarten at Ray and I truly love and enjoy it.
During my free time I love to read, exercise, travel (the Pictures page you can access has many photos of things we study in kindergarten from my travels), go to restaurants, go to museums, and very basic cooking. In April 2013, my husband and I welcomed an english bulldog puppy into our lives that we named Stella. She is a great dog and we spend lots of time on walks, going to the dog park, and just hanging out around the condo. My students love to hear stories about what Stella has been up to. Because she is too cute to pass up, below is a picture of Stella from from May 2017.
It would be helpful for you to send me an email with your name and the name of your child. That way I know I have your correct email. All newsletters and updates will be posted on the blog and sent as a paper copy in the home folders. Send me an email if you would like to go paperless with the weekly newsletter.
Our excellent kindergarten team will be working hard all year to meet the needs of all students.
