I'm so excited to be teaching 2nd grade this year at Oakland! This will be my 15th year of teaching, but my first year back in the classroom after a break to stay home with my two boys followed by 1.5 years working in the libraries at Irving & Oakland. Your children may remember me from their library checkout times!
I graduated from Illinois Wesleyan and earned my master's degree in reading at ISU. I taught 1st grade for one year in Decatur and kindergarten for thirteen years at Sheridan School.
Our family is also an Oakland family. My son Lukas will be a 7th grader at BJHS and spent 5 years as an Oakland student. My son Eli will be a first grader at Oakland this year. We all feel lucky to be part of such a great learning community.
Thank you for sharing your children with me. I look forward to getting to know them better and to working with your families. While this year is off to an unusual start, I know we can work through it together!
