I am very happy to be supporting students and staff as the Student Resource Team Leader at Wood View Elementary School! My role as an SRT leader is to assist school teams and families in providing academic and behavioral supports to students throughout the problem-solving and special education process. I am also the facilitator and local education agency (LEA) representative for individualized education plans (IEPs). This is my second year in this role at Valley View and my first year at Wood View. Prior to taking on this position I was a special education teacher in the classroom for 13 years.
I received my Bachelor's in special education from Illinois State University in 2005 (Go Redbirds!), a Master's in Reading Specialty from Olivet Nazarene University in 2011, and recently completed a second Master's in Administration at Concordia University (2019).
My husband and I live in Channahon and we have two daughters, a yellow lab, and recently adopted an adult cat. In my spare time I enjoy listening to audio books and creating new memories and sharing experiences with family and friends.
