I received my Bachelor’s Degree in both Education and Psychology from UW-Parkside, and a Masters Degree in Curriculum Development and Instruction from National Louis University. I taught at St. George Catholic School for a year before joining the KUSD family at Washington Middle School where I taught Math and English. After three years, I transferred to Columbus Elementary School where I taught third and fourth grades for more than twenty years. After Columbus closed, I chose to join Bullen Middle School as an English and Social Studies teacher. Wanting to get back into elementary curriculum and instruction, I then transferred to Forest Park where I am in my third year of teaching fifth graders. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, reading, walking, car shows and spending time with family and friends. Most importantly, my passion is helping all students reach their full potential.
