Hello and welcome to Fourth grade!  I joined St. Joseph School in 2012 and have been so grateful for the wonderful students and families I have met throughout the years.  Before teaching at St. Joseph I taught in the Woodridge School District.  I am from the area and graduated from Downers Grove South High School in 2003.  I attended the University of Iowa (Go Hawkeyes!) and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with specializations in Social Studies, Science, Language Arts, and Business.  I also received my Minor in Business Administration.  In 2016 I finished my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Reading from Concordia University.

I recently got married and my husband and I live on the north side of Chicago.  We enjoy trying out new restaurants and cheering on the Cubs at Wrigley Field.  I also teach dance, ballet and pointe, at an outside dance studio for all ages and love watching the students get ready for competitions and recitals.  I love to travel and learn the history of new places I go to, college football in the fall, and getting together with family and friends.  I hope to instill a love of reading in my fourth graders and a love of history in my social studies classes.
