In 1998, I graduated from Monmouth College, in Monmouth, Ill., with my bachelor’s degree in elementary and special education with endorsements in middle school language arts and social sciences. In 2003, I completed my master’s degree in educational leadership at Aurora University. In 2019, I received my certification as a National Board Certified Teacher.
I began my teaching career at Traughber Junior High School in 1998 as a learning disabilities teacher. In 2004, I took a four-year leave to raise my children. I returned to Traughber in January of 2009 and transitioned to sixth grade language arts in the fall of that year. I received my gifted endorsement and began teaching Honors ELA in 2016 and became Traughber's Instructional Coach in 2019. In 2021, I made the switch to 8th grade US History. I currently serve on Traughber's AVID Site Team and the District 7th and 8th grade Social Studies Curriculum Committees.
