Principal

I am so happy to be the Principal at Homestead Elementary School. This is my 16th year in Community Unit School District 308. For the last six years, I have served as the Assistant Principal for Churchill Elementary School. Prior to becoming a Mustang, I was a teacher at Homestead for eight years and Bednarcik for one. I taught fifth grade for seven years, third grade for one year, and a multi-age (fourth and fifth grade) classroom for one year. I also coached volleyball at Bednarcik Junior High and Oswego East High School. I attended the University of Iowa, in Iowa City, and graduated in 2001 with a degree in elementary education. I also attended Concordia University, Chicago, and received my master’s degree in May of 2009 in educational leadership. I am glad that I am in District 308 because the students are outstanding, the faculty and staff are great to work with, and the community is very supportive.

Assistant Principal

It is an honor to be a part of the Homestead Elementary community. This is my second year as an Assistant Principal and I am thrilled to be in the Oswego School District. My career began in Naperville School District 203 teaching second grade for five years. For the past eight years I have taught fifth grade in the Batavia and St. Charles area. While teaching fifth grade, I also served as the Director of Learning Resources.

My desire to be an educator began at Benedictine University in Lisle, Illinois. I then received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from National Louis University and later, my Administrative degree from Aurora University. Making a positive difference in education and in the lives of every child I meet, is very important to me.

I look forward to an opportunity to learn and grow in this outstanding school community.

Special Education Coordinator

I am  proud to be part of School District 308, and especially proud to be a part of the outstanding communities of Homestead and Wolf’s Crossing Elementary.  The supportive and involved parents at both schools set the foundation for a positive learning experience.   Staff who show how much they care about each student,  and go above and beyond,  truly make each building a special place to be.  The learning environment at  both buildings is inspiring and I value the relationships I have built with parents and teachers.

As a special education coordinator, I oversee the process of identifying, evaluating, and instructing children with special needs.   Through collaboration with parents, teachers, and students, I strive to provide each student with a learning experience that allows him/her to excel.   I rely on my 20 years of experience as a general education teacher, special education teacher, and inclusion facilitator to support the teachers and students at both Homestead and Wolf’s Crossing Elementary.  

My educational background includes a Bachelor of Arts from St. Mary’s University in Winona, Minnesota.  I then received a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Illinois.  I  attended Loyola University’s Educational Leadership certification program and began my administrative  career in LaGrange/School District 102 followed by Indian Prairie School District 204.  After some time off to stay home with my children, Megan and Ryan, I joined the District 308 community in 2013 as a special education teacher at Long Beach Elementary School, and continued on as a coordinator for Kendall County Special Education Cooperative.  

I am excited about the opportunity to be on the leadership team of School District 308 to work in partnership with communities and families as we educate all students to reach their highest potential
