I have been working in education since 2009, but graduated with my Bachelors degree from WGU in 2017 and then my Masters degree in Elementary Math in 2019. I became part of the Bradley East family back in 2017 and love teaching first grade. It's a year of exceptional growth for students and I love being a part of it! I am very much looking forward to getting to know everyone and seeing the kiddos grow throughout the year!


A little bit more about me:

My husband, Joe, and I both grew up in the area and currently live in Manteno with our 3 kids (Abby, Ashton, & Bennett) and our spunky dog, Bailey.

We are Chicago fans in my household- Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bears, Chicago Blackhawks! (Sorry Cubs fans!)

My kids and I have a deep obsession with Target and Starbucks.

I will not go to the store if I can buy it on Amazon (with the exception of the above comment).

I am an avid book reader! I love going to author events, meeting other book lovers, and reviewing copies before they're released!
