          Hi, I’m a third grade teacher at Pioneer Elementary School. This is my thirteenth year at Pioneer. Before I started at Pioneer, I taught in Matteson, Illinois for six years. I have been teaching third grade for nineteen years. I love third graders!

        In spring of 2009, I completed my Master’s degree from National Louis University. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Lewis University.

        I love being outside! I enjoy all kinds of outside activities. I enjoy boating, waterskiing, tubing, downhill skiing, camping, hiking, and many more. If it’s an outdoor activity I’m there!   Also, I enjoy traveling to places in the United States, Caribbean Islands, and other countries. I love going on vacation because I love adventures and exploring new areas that I have never been to before. One of my favorite places in the United States is California.   It is such a beautiful place. I especially love Disneyland and Sea World!

        My family consists of my husband and my two furry children (dogs). I have two of the cutest dogs in the whole world! Reily and Cooper are Shiba Inus. This breed comes from Japan. They are very smart and extremely adorable. My husband and I have been married for fourteen years.

        Can’t wait to start a brand new school year with you! See you soon! :)
