My Class2nd Grade

Welcome to Second Grade!

 My husband Rich and I have been married since 1983, the year I received my BS in Education from WIU.  After several years in the classroom, I "retired” to stay home with my two children becoming a Grundy Gator in 2002.  In 2006, I received a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction/Reading.   

 I like to quote the army in saying, second grade is “not just a job, it’s an adventure!”  I feel blessed beyond measure to be here at Grundy, in Morton where I grew up and raised my two children.

 I believe that every child can feel success and if we all work together in "Team Second Grade," it will happen.

I am honored and excited to be able to tell people that I am a teacher at Grundy Elementary School!!  After completing 11 years in this profession, I can honestly say that I can't picture myself ever doing anything else!  Teaching is my passion!

I graduated from ISU in May 2006 with a degree in Elementary Education.  I graduated in May of 2012 with a Master’s in Reading from ISU as well.  I recently received a Master’s in Elementary Education too.  I hope to continue teaching second grade for many years.  I love all of the qualities that second graders possess, and I truly enjoy watching them grow both socially and academically throughout the year!

I have lived in Morton for the majority of my life, and I truly love the community!  When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our three year old daughter, Sydney.  I’m excited to say our family is looking forward to the upcoming addition of a baby boy to our family in October of 2017.  I also enjoy reading, shopping, and exercising.

Mission for the Class 

It is my passion to support and inspire students during their educational journey.  I hope to promote confidence and success in each aspect of my students' growth within a nurturing and caring environment.
