I am a Burlington High School graduate and I still live there with my husband, Joe, and my two children, Clayton (age 5) and Hazel (age 2). After graduating from High School I went to UW-Whitewater where I earned my Business Administration Bachelor Degree with an emphasis in Marketing. I worked in downtown Milwaukee as a Marketing Assistant, after that I took a Marketing Director position at the Burlington Chamber of Commerce. Though I enjoyed this career, I knew that I really wanted to teach.
So, I began taking classes at Carthage College to earn my Teaching Certification with a History Minor. My first teaching position was as a 4th grade teacher at Whittier Elementary in Kenosha Unified School District. The following 2 years I taught at Paris Elementary teaching part time 3rd grade math which allowed me time to stay home with my two young children.
This year my son will be entering Kindergarten so I decided this was a good time for a new challenge for me as well! I am really looking forward to meeting all of you and your students!
