I am thrilled to be teaching 2nd grade again at St. James School!! This is my 5th consecutive year teaching 2nd grade.  I have also worked as a teaching assistant in kindergarten, a substitute teacher in the primary grades, and a preschool teacher.   In 1997 I earned my Bachelors of Education from Illinois State University and in 2017 I earned my Master’s of Education in Reading from National Louis University.
