About Me

 

I am very happy to be a 4th grade teacher at Spencer Crossing this year!  I will teach ELA and Science/Social Studies.  My background includes earning a Bachelor's Degree in Finance from Illinois State University and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from the University of St. Francis.  I also have an endorsement in Special Education from the University of St. Francis.  In my free time, I love to travel, read, listen to music, watch the University of Texas football games & Indiana University basketball games, and spend time with my husband and two sons.  I am also an avid fan of St. Louis Cardinal baseball!
