Welcome to my Homepage!
Thanks for visiting my homepage! I am in my seventh year here at Lincoln, but my 11th year teaching overall. I completed my undergraduate degree at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. In January of 2008, I graduated from Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois with my Master’s as a Reading Specialist. I teach 6th, 7th and 8th grade reading here at Lincoln and I also coach the boys volleyball team. On weekends I work at an animal emergency center as a veterinary technician. If you have ever watched Animal ER, then you have a good idea of what that job is like! It is because of this job that I have 8 pets! That’s right, I said 8! One of the things that I like to do when I am not in school is read. In fact, I LOVE TO READ and try to share my passion for reading and its importance in life with my students. Other things that I like to do include: scrap-booking, quilting, working on my house, gardening, and spending quality time with my friends and family.
