I am so excited to be at Jackson! This is my 24th year teaching and my 21st year here at Jackson. Time sure flies!
I grew up outside of Chicago, Illinois in a suburb called Rolling Meadows. I attended Winona State University and graduated in 1996 with a double major in elementary and special education. I graduated from St. Mary's University with my Master's Degree in Teaching and Learning in May 2002.
I spent three years teaching elementary school in a small town in southeastern Minnesota. I have been part of the special education department at Jackson since the fall of 1999. I became the Special Education Department Lead in 2010. I returned to the classroom in Fall 2016 and am really loving my time with students again!
I enjoy spending time with my family. I married my husband, Keith in 2003. We now have 2 sons, Jack and Henry. We enjoy frequent visits back "home" to Illinois to see my family. GO BEARS!I can often be found drinking coffee each morning. I enjoy digital scrapbooking, being a mommy, exploring the world with my kids, and traveling. I am involved in our church, and I love to read!Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
