This will be my 11th year working at St. Joe’s, but my 7th year teaching. For my first years here, I was an aide for grades 1, 3, 4, and 5.  From there, I took over teaching 3rd grade and after two years I moved to 2nd grade. This is my favorite grade to teach because it is such an exciting time for the children! They receive two sacraments this year! We spend a lot of time preparing for Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.

When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I grew up in Downers Grove, and my brothers and sisters and I attended St. Joseph School. I went to Marquette University in Milwaukee where I met my husband and graduated with a degree in psychology. Shortly after, I earned my Masters in Education from National Louis while working here.

I live in Downers Grove with my husband and two sons.
