I grew up on a farm in Forrest, IL. I moved to Normal to go to college, where I attended Illinois State University and earned my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I then went on to get my Master’s degree in Curriculum, Instruction and Technology through NOVA University.
I taught second grade in Rantoul, IL for one year before coming to Unit 5. I have been at Glenn elementary for the past 6 years and love it.
I have a wonderful husband who also works in the district as a Physical Education teacher and Wrestling coach at Parkside Jr. High. We have a beautiful daughter Piper who will be 2 in March.
