I am very happy to be supporting students and staff as the Student Resource Team Leader at Irene King and John Tibbott elementary schools! 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 a new employee to the district and the role, and so far have really enjoyed collaborating with educators and families to meet the needs of the students. 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 young daughters and a yellow lab. In my spare time I enjoy creating new memories and sharing experiences with family and friends.
