I attended Dunlap grade schools, and Peoria Notre Dame High School. I graduated in 2005 from Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa (Go Duhawks!) where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, as well as an Endorsement in Reading.
This is my 12th year teaching total! This is my fifth year teaching Kindergarten at South School. Before I was a Dolphin, I taught my first year at Dunlap Grade School as a Remedial Reading and Math Specialist for grades K-4. I then went on to teach three years of 2nd grade and three years of 1st grade at Pleasant Valley Elementary School in Peoria. I am thrilled with my decision to further my teaching career at South School! I feel so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful district and community, and I know you and your families will too!
