I am a proud Hillside Honeybee. I have been teaching at Hillside School since 1997. I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades. This is my fifth year as the Academic Support Teacher for Kindergarten and 1st grade. I have a master's degree in education and recently completed my Dyslexia Certification through Antioch University. I have been trained in Orton Gillingam multi sensory instruction.
I live in Park Ridge with my husband and 16 year old triplets who are juniors at Park Ridge High School.
The emotional well being of all of my students is very important to me. I believe in all my students and am passionate about helping them achieve their full potential. One of my favorite quotes from a renowed advocate for children and literacy, Maryanne Wolf, is "Those of us who work with children want them to realize that although they may learn differently, each one of them can and will learn to read."
