I am excited to begin my 7th year at TCS and my 11th year in the classroom! I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Loyola University in Maryland and went on to earn a Master’s in Curriculum Studies at DePaul University in Chicago. I taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade in Chicago before moving back to my beloved hometown. I enjoy any time I get to share with my family and friends. My husband and I are the parents of lovely twin girls. My favorite part of teaching is watching the kids grow into confident, unique individuals. I love being a part of a community that, through academics and crew, shapes students to be effective, empathetic citizens.
