I have been teaching at Leigh school for 13 years now! I teach all of the students in grades K-4, but have also taught 5th grade as well as some Jr. High classes. I love that I get to see the students grow each year and get to know them better! I grew up in Wilmette, IL and went to New Trier High School. I grew up with 1 sister who is 4 years older than me. While growing up I was always playing sports. My favorite sport to play is softball. I played for a traveling team called the Trevians, at New Trier all 4 years and also many adult leagues.
My husband and I were married in 2008. I married into a huge family, he is the 8th out of 9 kids! Family is very important to us and we love that we live close to most of them. We have some exciting news this year... we are expecting our first child in December! We have 4 cats and a ton of fish! Our cat Valerie has Cerebellar Hypoplasia, causing her head to bobble and to have a difficult time walking. Her sister Daisy also had Cerebellar Hypoplasia, but passed away due to complications with her lungs.
