After completing my Master's Degree, I began teaching in our district in 1995. I worked in 4th grade for several years, and then began teaching 5th grade in 2001. I feel very fortunate to be a part of our wonderful district and work hard every day, along with support from parents, to help my students grow academically, socially, and emotionally.
I have a large family and my husband, John, and I love to spend time all together. My eldest graduated from Michigan State University and is back in the area working. My daughter is a junior in college at St. Louis University and is studying Nursing. My next in line is in high school and my youngest is a fifth grader here at Rutledge Hall. I am fortunate to be part of our lovely Lincolnwood community as a teacher, parent, and community member!
Please contact me at any time with comments, questions, and/or concerns. Our strong communication will help your child meet his/her fifth grade goals.
