Welcome to the TERRIFIC world of Third Grade!

I am excited to spend my fifth year teaching in District 308 at Grande Park Elementary.  I taught 4th grade at Grande Park for 3 years.  I graduated from Georgia State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.  I accepted my first teaching job in 2007 where I taught 4th grade.  I had the privilege of looping with my first class and I moved up with them to teach 5th grade.  From there, I continued to teach 5th grade for the next four years.  During the last three years of my teaching career in GA, I taught 1st and 5th grades.  I attended Kennesaw State University in 2013 and received my Georgia Reading Endorsement.  In July of 2014, my family relocated to IL.  I completed a long term substitute assignment at Homestead Elementary School as the LMS Director.  I was fortunate to receive a full time teaching position at Grande Park Elementary.  Currently, I am enrolled at Aurora University in the Masters of Educational Leadership Program.  I beleive in creating life-long learners and I strive to model that belief through my learning experiences.     

I am looking forward to partnering with you this year.  Thank you for the opportnity to work with your child!  This is going to be a wonderful year of learning and growing!
