This is my 17th year teaching and let me tell ya, I LOVE what I do. I have taught at the collegiate level, middle level and now elementary. I have 17 years teaching experience and this is my 8th year teaching 4th grade. I am privileged to be the math teacher. I count it ALL joy to be servicing children of Dunbar Elementary. I am a STEAM teacher to my core and pride myself on giving children an educational experience that is memorable. I try to give children an education that I would want my own children to receive. You are more than welcome to come by to visit our class at any time. 🙂 We LOVE company.
I am the team leader of 4th grade, coach Junior Robotics team, and Technology chair.
I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a B.S. in Education/ Mathematics concentration. I earned my graduate degree from Concordia University in Math Curriculum and Instruction. I’m still unsure about what I want to be when I grow up, but being an entrepreneur is definitely a goal, as well as being the best mom and teacher that I can be.
