Principal

I am proud to serve as principal of The Wheatlands Elementary School. This year marks the 14th school year that I have served School District 308. I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Southern Illinois University, in Carbondale, Ill., in 1998. I began my teaching career as a student teacher in third grade in New Lenox. For the remainder of the 1998-1999 school year, I was a teacher’s assistant with special education students in fourth and fifth grades, also in New Lenox. I then helped open a brand new building in New Lenox as a fourth grade teacher and remained teaching there for six years. During that time, I received my master’s degree in administration from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, in 2001. I received my doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from Aurora University.

I have served as a Churchill Mustang since 2005 when I became the assistant principal, then principal in 2011, but am now excited for the opportunity to be a Wolf!  I am honored to continue to build on the strong foundation at The Wheatlands and look forward to continuing to serve the School District 308 community in this capacity.

Assistant Principal

I am proud to serve as assistant principal of The Wheatlands Elementary School.

I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education and sociology, with a minor in theater, from Principia College in 2001.  I began my teaching career in St. Louis as a fourth grade student teacher at Mary Institute Country Day School (MICDS) in the same year and served as a teaching assisstant in the elementary grades for the remainder of that school year. I then transitioned to St. Louis Public Schools where I taught second through fourth grade from 2001-2003.  From 2003-2009, I was privileged to be a part of the award-winning Parkway School District in the suburbs of St.Louis teaching third and fourth grades. In 2009 I relocated to Chicago and began teaching second through fourth grades in the Plainfield School District.  Serving in Plainfiled awarded me with the unique experience of teaching in a general education classroom, a dual-curriculum classroom, and a self-contained gifted classroom. I received my first master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from American College of Education in 2011, and followed that with a master's in educational leadership from the same institution in 2017. I began in School District 308 in 2016 as a gifted education teacher leader and am proud to continue to be a part of this amazing school district, now serving as a part of the community at The Wheatlands. 

I am excited to be a part of The Wheatlands to serve students, families, and staff.  Go wolves!
