I am excited for my second year here at St. Joseph School. I absolutely love being an Art Teacher! I have always loved creating art, and I love teaching young children. I graduated from the University of Illinois in Elementary Education with an Art Concentration, I am endorsed to teach Art and Language Arts. I started as a first grade teacher, and from there had a variety of roles teaching art and working with children of different ages as I focused on being a mom to my two creative children. As a family, we love traveling, and you could often find us visiting friends in Florida or taking a family road trip. I also love painting, walking in nature, and enjoying a good cup of coffee.


I am thankful for my own Catholic School Education, and it is a great feeling to be teaching in a faith-focused educational community with such wonderful students. I am ready for another creative and fun year at St. Joseph School!
