All About Me

The 2017-18 school year is my 20th year working in the field of literacy education.  Currently, I am in my 16th year at Hawthorne Elementary School, working with K-5 students as a Reading Specialist.  It is amazing to watch children learn to read and write in the primary grades.  As a Reading Specialist, I get to facilitate this process.  In the intermediate grades, I enjoy working with children as they continue to grow as readers and writers.  Before beginning my career in Elmhurst CUSD 205, I worked as an educator in two school districts in Wisconsin (a rural district and a suburban Milwaukee district).  I earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee.  Later, I was awarded a Master of Science in Reading Education from the University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh.  I am a member of the Illinois Reading Council, Wisconsin State Reading Association, Reading Recovery Council of North America, and International Literacy Association.
