Welcome to first grade! I earned my Bachelor's degree through Northern Illinois University. My Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction was earned through National Louis University. I have been teaching in the Forrestville Valley School District for 28 years. This is my second year being at Forreston Grade School.  I enjoy working with the other first grade teachers in our little corner of the building! I have been married for 33 years. Rusty and I have two wonderful daughters.  Cassidy and Lexie both attend the University of Illinois at Chicago. Cassidy is pursuing a pharmacy degree and will be getting married in December 2018.  Lexie is a senior at UIC and a member of the UIC swimming and diving team. We are "empty nesters", other than our two cocker spaniels that live at home with us.
