I am a graduate from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. I received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education along with my endorsements in Mathematics, Language Arts, Science and Social Studies. I have also received my masters in Curriculum and Instruction, along with an ESL endorsement from Olivet Nazarene University. I have taught in both 5th and 3rd grade here at River Valley. I am from Lemont and attended the schools in District 113a so I am very invested in this school and this community. I am committed to providing each of my students with the best possible education and helping them to have a successful year. I believe that constant communication and feedback is important for both myself and my students. I want this website to be a great resource for both my students and their parents. I will try my best to make sure that it is up to date and useful.
