        Hello and Welcome to First Grade! I am so excited to begin our new school year! Prepare your     student to be a "First Class Traveler" this year as we explore where reading and learning can take us!
    Here is a little bit about myself:
    Birthday: February 13
    Favorite color: Green
    Graduated from: Saint Xavier University class of 2012 
     Years teaching: 3 (1 year at Fry Elementary School in Burbank and this is my second year at CK!)
    Family: 1 super energetic 4 year old boy named Ethan who attends preschool here at CK! And 1 super cute fur baby named Kenzie-Baroo.

        A little extra about me: 
    I have been to 4 colleges ( I know, I know -but dorm life wasn't my thing ). I began at Valparaiso as a Nursing student, and quickly decided blood wasn't my thing. I then followed my heart into education. Learning has always been my passion, I often wish I could be a professional student, the classroom is where I belong. I then went to Moraine Valley Community College, ISU and finally graduated from Saint Xavier University. Throughout college, I worked at Petco in Oak Lawn for 6 years as a groomer. I really love animals and enjoy using my creative skills. Speaking of creative, I incorporate a lot of creative thinking activities and ways for children to demonstrate their knowledge. 
    Thank you for sharing your precious children with me, I look forward to an AWESOME year!
