5th Grade Classroom/4th and 6th Grade Math
College: I started out at Northeast Community College where I received my associate's degree in elementary education. I transferred to Wayne State College and received my bachelor's degree in 2010.
Experience: I student taught in the fifth grade at Boone Central Schools. I substitute taught all grades for two years in Elgin and area schools. Then I was hired full time and taught 4th grade for four years before switching to 5th grade. This is my tenth year teaching at Elgin Public. I have also been assistant basketball coach, assistant track coach, FCCLA sponsor, and now EHCC sponsor.
Biography: Both my husband, Dan, and I are from Elgin so it's awesome to be raising our family here too. We live in the country where my husband farms. Our daughter, Brooke, is in second grade, our son, Parker, is in 3 year old preschool, and our son, Louie, is in daycare. I love animals so of course I have pets- an Australian Shepherd named Clyde and two cats, Cookie and Hawkeye. When I'm not teaching, I'm either spending time with family, reading, or cleaning/organizing. The cleaning never ends!
