Welcome to Room 48!

Hello!  I am a new teacher to Homewood 153's district and am excited to be teaching 2nd grade.  I love all things hands-on and STEAM, however, my teaching style encompasses other learning styles to reach our students. 
 
Although I was born and reared in Chicago, I currently reside in the south suburbs.  I received a Bachelors in Business Administration from Chadron State College, a Masters of Education in Early Childhood Administration from National-Louis University, and a Masters of Art in Teaching w/Special Education from Governors State University.  I have been a certified teacher for 3 years, a Substitute Teacher, RTI Specialist, After-School Specialist, and more.
 
I look forward to welcoming "our" children to Room 48 for an awesome, unforgettable return to in-school learning!
