2020-2021 Class Roster

I am so excited to teach Kindergarten here at Dunbar Elementary School! I have been a classroom teacher for 14+ years and most of those years were spent right here in the “City of Champions.” I am a proud product of this community and feel so privileged to be given the opportunity to work with our children. I consider myself a “forever FLYER” after graduating from East St. Louis Sr. High School in 2001. In 2006, I graduated from Southern Illinois University with a B.S. in Education. Later, I earned a M.S. in Education from Lindenwood University, along with a M.S. in Educational Administration. It is my mission to ensure the success of every student that enters my class. I absolutely love to laugh and strive to make learning experiences fun.

I am a devoted mother of two wonderful children. We love hanging out together and creating memories. Football takes over our lives from August – November every single year thanks to my son Trent. In my free time, my daughter Taylor and I love to shop!
