I am looking forward to working with your child. Throughout the year, we will be working on a wide variety of activities designed to meet your child's goals. My goal is to create an atmosphere of open communication regarding your child's progress in school. With your cooperation and support, I feel that together we can make this a most successful year for your child.

My hometown is Marshall, Illinois. I graduated from Marshall High School and received a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Indiana State University. I have endorsements in reading, learning disabilities, language arts and social studies. I began my teaching career at Crestwood Elementary School in Paris, Illinois and later accepted a position for the Marshall School District. It is a privilege to work with children. I love teaching!

My husband and I are blessed with three beautiful daughters who are married and have given us precious grandchildren.

I enjoy reading, riding my bike, playing the piano and spending time with my family.
