I am beginning my 42nd year in the Kinnikinnick School District, all in fourth grade! Fourth graders are wonderful to work with because of their never-ending curiosity, their eagerness to please, and their love for learning. I grew up in Loves Park, went to Harlem High School, attended Drake University and graduated from Rockford College/University with an Elementary Education Degree. I later completed my MAT degree in reading, also from Rockford College/University. I am married and live in Rockford. I have two boys, Will, 36, a medical implants salesman, who married Mary Kathleen in October 2011 and Phillip, 31, a client associate in wealth management who married Cara on June 2nd, 2018. I am excited to become a first time Grandma in November 2019!!!! Both boys live in the Chicagoland area. I also have two labs, a black lab, Izzie 14, and a 1 year old chocolate lab, Mia. I was honored and thrilled to receive the Golden Apple Award for teaching in March of 2006. It was such an honor to be recognized for doing a job I love. For fun I like to golf, read, care for my dogs, horse back ride, travel, and teach!!
My goals for your children.... I hope to learn all I can about my students, give them a sense of belonging in my class, celebrate their strengths, and build their courage and confidence to help them face their academic challenges. I will teach from my heart, be fair, listen, and help each child become accountable for their learning. And, we will have lots of fun along the way.
