Hello and welcome to Tarwater! I have been teaching at Tarwater since 2005 and all three of my own children attended Tarwater. The best part about Tarwater is being a part of the Tarwater Community. Teachers, Parents, and students all work together as one family helping each other to learn and grow.

My Education and Professional Background

I completed my masters in Elementary Education and an endorsement in English Language Development from National Louis University in Illinois.

My Educational Philosophy

I feel very fortunate to be working in a profession I truly enjoy. Teaching children is a joy and also a tremendous responsiblity. I teach each child as if they were my own child. My goal and hope for them is that they will leave my classroom with a love for learning as well as confidence and pride in their accomplishments.
