Subjects Taught
5th Grade


I have taught at Williams Bay Elementary since 1996.  I taught primary grades in District 15, Palatine, Illinois, before my daughters were born.  At Williams Bay Elementary School I have taught both 5th and 6th grade.  I grew up in Arlington Heights, Illinois.  I have an Elementary Education degree from Western Illinois University and a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Supervision from Northern Illinois University.

I live in Williams Bay.  My daughters are graduates of Williams Bay High School.  My older daughter, Mackenzie, graduated from UW-Madison in 2009.  She lives and works in Madison.  My younger daughter, Megan, is employed by Big Foot Area Schools as a speech pathologist. My step-son, Scott, lives in Western Springs with his wife and three children.  My step-daughter Kelly lives in South Elgin with her husband and son. 

I have been an active member of Williams Bay Women’s Civic League for over 20 years.  I enjoy reading and walking the lakeshore path.
