Reading 4th grade, Reading 5th Grade


I received my Bachelor's in Elementary Education from Valparaiso University in 1998.  I later received my Master's in Elementary Education in 2007 from Purdue University Calumet.


I began my teaching career at St. Paul's Lutheran School in Munster, Indiana. I taught 5th grade for one year and 2nd grade for two years. This was the elementary school I had attended as a child, so it made my experience there even more rewarding.  My teachers had become my collegues!  I then substitute taught in several Porter County  school coroprations for two years.  Presently, I am the Title 1 teacher at Boone Grove Elementary and have been at both elementaries throughout my 12 years in this corporation.   


I was married in 2007 and moved to Crown Point, Indiana.  My husband and I have two children.  Zackary is 5 and will soon be in Kindergarten, and Aubrey is 2.   We also have an energetic dog named Huey.   I enjoy reading, excercising, and running, but mostly just being with my family.
