Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up in Wisconsin and attended the University of WI- Whitewater where I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Special Education – Early Childhood. I later earned a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction along with receiving my English Language Learner endorsement. I have taught in Early Childhood Special Education classroom programs in Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois along with working with Early Intervention Home Program in IA. I have spent my entire teaching career working with young children and their families. I find each day with young children in the classroom is unlike the previous day, every day being a new adventure. I appreciate having the chance to help instill a love of learning for our youngest learners. I live in Naperville with my husband and we have two adult daughters. I enjoy walking, reading, taking my dog to the dog park, watching the Milwaukee Brewers and cheering on the Green Bay Packers.
