I was born and raised in Kenosha and actually went to St. Mary's (former south campus) for K5 - 6th grade. I then attended UW LaCrosse and UW Parkside receiving my degree in Liberal Arts and my Certificate in Teaching (birth - 3rd grade). This is my ninth year teaching 5 year old Kindergarten at ASCS. I put my heart and soul into my students and their families in order to make sure that my students not only learn, but love the process of learning and educating themselves.
A little more about me: I love to spend time with my cat and two dogs, travel with my family and boyfriend and go up north to our cabin. You can always find me with a new book in my hand when I have some down time. I love kayaking. I recently received my Real Estate License.
I am also on the ASCS Safety Committee and am the Home and School Teacher Liaison.
Mission Statement: *Together we will teach children to see the world through the eyes of Christ and to model the lives of the saints, In a rigorous, academic environment.*
Please make sure that you are taking the time to sit down with your son/daughter every night to read with them for at least 15 minutes.
