I grew up south of Carbondale near Makanda and Giant City Park. I attended Unity Point School for K-7th grade and Lincoln Middle School in Carbondale for my 8th grade year. I graduated Carbondale Community High School in 1989.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary and Special Education from Southern Illinois University. I also received my Master’s Degree from Greenville College.
This is my 17th year teaching at Raccoon School. Prior to teaching at RGS, I taught a second grade class. I am so excited to start this new fifth grade year adventure with my class.
My husband, Dan and I have been married since April 2009. We live out in the country between Breese and St. Rose with our two sons. Oscar is seven years old and Ivan turns three in February.
