I was born and raised in Wheaton, Illinois and went to Illinois State University (the teaching school of Illinois). I did my student teaching in 4th grade, my first year of teaching in 4th grade, then made the jump up to middle school and taught a year of 8th grade, then decided I needed to move to Texas, where I taught 4th grade in Garland for three years. I have been teaching in LISD for 8 years now and 6 out of the 7 years have been in 4th grade. I have now moved into a new position as the Technology teacher and am excited to be a great resource for teachers and students. I am excited about this year and all the cool things we will be doing.
When I am not at work, you can find me spending time with my family, working out and running, I will be running the Boston Marathon in April. I have been married for 7 years and have two young children, Byron (5 yrs old) and Bennett (3 yr old).
I am looking forward to a fantastic year!
