Welcome to second grade!  I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to be your teacher this year!
 
My interest in teaching all began when I was little.  I was probably a second grader.  Growing up, I loved to play school.  I was always surrounded by children both older and younger than myself.  On my mom's side of the family, my grandma owned a daycare.  And my dad has twelve brothers and sisters. Needless to say, I was truly always around children!  As I grew older, my family moved away from my relatives in Illinois, but my passion for teaching continued.
 
In May 2006, I graduated from Indiana University after completing my student teaching experience at College Wood Elementary and overseas in Surrey, England near London.  My overseas experience has heightened my desire to travel.  I want to go everywhere!  Several summers ago I took my dream vacation to Italy.  I can't wait for my next traveling adventure! 

For the last seven years, I taught second grade at West Clay.  Previously, I was a first grade teacher here at West Clay.  I have also worked at Towne Meadow Elementary in a second grade classroom and as a remediation instructional assistant.
 
Outside of school I enjoy reading, baking/eating chocolate desserts (YUMMY!), going on walks, and shopping.  Besides these activities, I love to spend time with my family and friends.  In June 2007, I married my high school sweetheart, Nick, whom I love dearly!  In May 2012, we welcomed our son, William.  In February 2015, Charles joined our family.  I love being with my boys!
 
I am looking forward to getting to know you and your family this year!
