I am a local of LaSalle County where I have lived my entire life. I grew up with my parents and siblings on a farm in rural Dayton Township, where we raised cattle, hogs, corn and hay. My husband Scott and I are now raising our 3 daughters, Maddie, Ellie and Josie on a small farmette outside of Mendota. I also have 2 older step-daughters, Abby and Hannah a granddaughter, Irelynn, and another on the way. When not at school most of my time revolves around hauling my girls to rodeo competitions and riding horses with family and friends and working outside with our animals. My educational journey, although short, has been filled with terrific opportunities and experiences. I graduated with my Associates degree from Illinois Valley Community College and then attended Northern Illinois University where I received my teaching degree majoring in Health Education. I began my teaching career at Seneca High School where I taught Health Education, Science and Driver’s Education. I soon enrolled at National-Louis University where received a master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction. I then took a position at Lincoln Junior High School in LaSalle, IL where I taught 6th & 8th grade science and also worked collaboratively with a wonderful group of instructors from IVCC on a National Science Foundation grant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education. While teaching at Lincoln I enrolled at University of St. Francis where I received my master’s degree in Educational Leadership. That degree and my love of children then brought me to what I believe has been the best opportunity of my life…Waltham Elementary! I believe in the excellence of this small community and pride myself knowing that I have the opportunity to serve this great group of children, families and community. I look forward to continuing to serve the Waltham School Community for many years to come.
