Welcome to Room 53!

Hi Wildcat families!  I am so excited to be your child's first grade teacher this year.  We are going to have an amazing time learning, exploring, and growing together.  This is my third year teaching at Willow, and my fifth year overall.  I graduated from Saint Xavier in 2014 with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education.  I started teaching kindergarten in 2014 in Chicago, and moved to the suburbs in 2016.  I graduated from Depaul in 2018 with a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership.  
 
I have two younger sisters, and a pet dog Rocco. I love to run, and my favorite food is pizza.
