I am so excited to be at Millburn Elementary again this year! While this is my third year at Millburn, I have been teaching for ten years. My time has been spent teaching 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classrooms; returning to 3rd grade was a complete joy for me.I graduated from Illinois State University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and endorsements in language arts, social sciences, and reading. My love for teaching reading led to me pursue my Master's program in this field. I graduated in May 2017 from Concordia University Chicago with a Master of Arts degree in reading education.My husband and I live in Lake Villa with our daughter and dog. We share a love of baseball, but different teams! I cheer for the Red Sox, and he is a Cubs fan. Some of my other favorite things are: spending time with family and friends, running, reading, giraffes, Target, Panera, Reese's, Pepsi, New England, and the 4th of July.I am looking forward to a wonderful year with our 3rd grade students!
