Welcome to Bernard J. Ward Elelmentary School. I have always enjoyed learning. I am a product of the Valley View School District, and I am proud to give back to the Romeoville/Bolingbrook community. I started off teaching in the Valley View School District in the bilingual department as a first grade teacher at Jonas Salk. I have also taught kindergarten at Independance and third grade at Jonas Salk. I was a highly successful educator and wanted to support my district in a leadership role, so in 2008 I became an Assistant Principal at Bernard J. Ward. I have been at BJW for nine years and happy to celebrate my 20th year serving the Valley View Community. 

I am blessed to work with a highly motivated and dedicated staff.  ♥ Each day I get to work along side of teachers and staff that always put children first.
