Quick Facts

Years Teaching:

This is my 14th year teacher and 5th in this district.  Prior to coming to New Lenox, I taught Pre-K, Kindergarten and First grade in Sauk Village. I Love working in Primary! I feel blessed everyday have the BEST job in the world!

Graduated From:

I graduated from Saint Xavier University in 2008 with a degree in Early Childhood Education with my Special Education Endorsement.  I also have my master's in Behavior Analysis and Therapy through Southern Illinois University.  I like to think of myself as a "life-long learner".  



I love spending time with my children.  My son's name is Jase (9 years old) and my daughter's name is Kenzie ( 6 years old). This year my son is a 4th grader at Oakview School and my daughter will a First grader at Haines.  We enjoy being outside, playing board games and watching movies.  During the pandemic, we decided to add to our little family and got a  PUPPY!   He is a Golden Doodle named Rizzo.  We have had so much fun learning how to train a puppy and enjoy our new family member. IMG_5019_2.jpeg
