Hello! I am so excited to start the school year and am eager to begin working with the students! I am the Resource teacher for kindergarten through third grade. I collaborate with the teachers to support the students in the classroom and work with the students in the Academic Support Center to increase their skills in reading and math.
This is my 11th year of teaching at Illinois School. I grew up in Michigan and came to Illinois for college. In 2008, I graduated from Trinity Christian College with a degree in Special Education and Elementary Education. A few years later, I completed my masters in Reading from Olivet Nazarene University. I have been married to my husband for six years and we have a 3 year old boy and a sweet baby girl. In my spare time I enjoy reading, watching sports, being outside and spending time with my family and friends.
I am looking forward to working with my students this year to make progress with their educational goals. Please feel free to contact me via phone or email with any questions or concerns.
