Hello! Welcome to 3rd grade.
Third grade is a fun and exciting time in your child’s life. I am happy to share this time with your family.
I spent the first 10 years of my teaching career in Hinsdale School District 181. Following the birth of my youngest child, I took great delight in being a "stay at home mom." While away from the classroom I remained active by: volunteering at my children’s schools, tutoring, and supervising au pairs for an international childcare organization. When my youngest child was in 2nd grade I returned to teaching, this time closer to home at Palos East.
Over the course of my teaching career, I have taught in 2nd grade, 3rd grade, & 2nd/3rd grade multi-age classrooms. I have also had the pleasure of “looping” from 2nd to 3rd grade on more than one occasion. (Looping is when a teacher teaches the same group of students for two or more consecutive years.)
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from University of Illinois at Chicago, a Master’s Degree in Multi-categorical Special Education, & a Certificate of Advanced Study in General School Administration. I have also completed additional course work in Gifted Education along with the Illinois State Board of Education recognized “Gifted Institute.”
When I’m not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my husband and college age children. I can also be found reading, walking our dogs, or updating family genealogy.
