About Me



After spending many years volunteering and substitute teaching in the NLSD 122 schools, my love and desire to become a elementary school teacher flourished.  I believe my attitude and enthusiasm for learning is reflected onto my students.  Teachers paint the first impression of school, education, and how students see themselves in the big picture.  I believe everyone cherishes a memory of a special teacher who has made an impact on their life in some way, big or small.  I hope to be one of those memorable teachers for your student.  Beside teaching, I love spending time with my family and spoiling our puppy, Bear.  He's the only one that still loves to snuggle!

Favorite Thing About Teaching:

I strive to develop in my students a love of school and learning, making our classroom a comfortable and safe place to learn, grow, and build long-lasting friendships.  I believe it is so important for students to want to come to school every day.  Building a strong self concept, as well as feeling good about their accomplishments, creates a strong foundation for the continued love of learning throughout a child's life.  I enjoy getting to know each of my students, what interests them, and what motivates their learning.  I believe I have one of the best and most rewarding jobs in the world! 


I am married to a wonderful, supportive husband of 26 years.  I am also the proud Mom of two children, Olivia (22) and Antonio (20), who are the outstanding products of the New Lenox School District.  I keep very busy being a mom, wife, and teacher!  We also rescued a puppy named Bear, who keeps me very busy and on my toes at all times!   Enjoying every minute, life flies by!
