I have been an educator since 1998. I graduated from UW-Whitewater in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science in Communicative Disorders. During graduate school, I discovered my passion for working with young children and decided to pursue a career in elementary education. I taught 4th grade in Deerfield, WI for a year, 1st grade at St. Mary’s for a year, and I taught 1st grade for five years at Jefferson before taking two years off after having my twin daughters. Upon returning to Jefferson, I taught 3rd grade, 2nd grade, and most recently, Early Education for the past four years. I have a son and twin daughters whom I love to spend time with. I love knitting, cooking and baking, and dancing in my spare time.
