Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to second grade! I received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Illinois State way back in 1986 - when we still used typewriters. My Master’s degree was earned in Curriculum & Instruction from National-Louis University in 1992. Prior to teaching at Spring Avenue, I taught 2nd grade in Lake Zurich for 6 years. I have been at Spring Avenue since 1994. Here I have taught 3rd grade, Accelerated Math and Advanced Reading in the Advanced Academics department, and 1st grade. I am excited to be starting my 13th year in 2nd grade at Spring Avenue.
