Welcome!! I grew up in Springfield, IL and have only lived in AZ for a year! My husband, Jim, works for CDW. We have three kids. Addison is 6 years old, and will be in 1st grade at Charlotte Patterson. My twins, Avalon and Lincoln, are 4 years old, and attend the Pre-K at Basha High School. We also have a 120 lb. German Shepherd named Zola.
My Education and Professional Background
I earned my Bachelor's degree in 2008 at Illinois State University. I then went on to get my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Aurora University. This will be my 12th year teaching. Previously, I taught 5 years of 6th grade, and 6 years of 5th grade in Yorkville, IL. Last year, my family and I moved from Oswego, IL to Gilbert, AZ. During that transition, I was a long-term substitute in Kindergarten.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that students learn best when they feel relaxed, safe, and appreciated. It is my job as an educator to create that environment in my classroom.
