I attended the University of Illinois and received my Bachelors degree in LIberal Arts and Sciences. I then went to Eureka College for my Elementary Education teaching certification.
I was a Special Education Aide for one year and taught third grade for two years at Midland Elementary in Lacon, IL. This will be my second year teaching fourth grade at CEC.
I grew up in the wonderful town of Chillicothe and currently reside here with my husband and two boys. I have two sons attending school in the district this year. We also are expecting another child in January of 2017. My two dogs, Tucker and Holly, keep our family busy. I love spending time with my family, running, fishing, and watching my boys play sports.
