Hello! Here's a bit of information about me to get to know me a bit better! I am an Illinois transplant. Born and raised in Kansas, I moved to Illinois in 1991 the same year I married my husband Bob. I have two boys (Bobby is 16 and Ryan is 14, two teenagers, I KNOW!) I have been teaching for 18 years, nine of which have been in the Mokena Public School District. I have taught Special Education, Fourth Grade, and now first grade. I love teaching first grade and can't imagine working for a better school. The parents, faculty, and administration are wonderful and so supportive. I am looking forward to a fantastic school year!
