I am a first grade teacher at St. Joseph School. I joined  St. Joseph in 2010 as the preschool teacher. In 2014 I moved to first grade.

Prior to coming to St. Joe’s I taught kindergarten, raised my family, worked with special needs children and taught religious education for many years at my parish.

I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from Illinois State University. I continue to find ways to make learning more engaging and interesting for my students.

Reading is one of my favorite things to do! I especially love using children’s literature in my classroom to teach vocabulary, parts of speech, writing, and much more. I also enjoy using hands-on activities to teach math and science.

I feel blessed to have met so many wonderful families here at St. Joseph’s.
