    Hi!  I am currently an Early Learning teacher at Brigham Elementary School.  I started teaching preschool in 2002 at Odell Grade School and in 2006 I began teaching in Unit 5.  I graduated from Illinois State University with a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and just recently I graduated from ISU with a Master's degree in Reading education. 

    My husband is the principal at Parkside Junior High in Unit 5 and has been an educator in Unit 5 since 1997.  We have three children together; two daughters (Kelsey and Alyssa) and one son (Ryan), they attend Pepper Ridge Elementary & Evans Junior High.  When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with my family & friends, reading, running, and playing with my puppies (Scout & Lucy).
