Silly Fact: I love cowboy boots, and wore a pair with my wedding dress!
I call myself a Quincy transplant. I grew up on a farm on the outskirts of Blandinsville, IL. I graduated from Northwestern High School in (gulp) 2001. I attended Monmouth College in Monmouth, IL where I graduated in 2005 with my bachelors in elementary education. I went back to school to get my masters degree from William Woods University and graduated in 2012 with a degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I moved to Quincy, and began my career in 2005. I taught 5th grade for 7 years in Baldwin North. This is my fifth year at QJHS. I love teaching 7th graders!
When I am not at school, I love spending time with my family. My husband, Aaron, and I have two children. Huntley, is all boy ! He will be four in May. Henzley, is such a sweet little baby. She will be two in May! They keep us very busy. It is truly amazing to watch them grow into little people! We spend most of our free time playing and reading with our kids. Our little family is so important to us!
I enjoy shopping, reading, baking, spending time with my family and friends, and traveling. In addition I am the president of my Pi Beta Phi alumnae club in Quincy. This is my sorority that I joined in college. It has been a huge part of my life since 2001. I found the love of serving my community and others through Pi Phi. Some of my best friends in life are from the wonderful group of women I spent my college days with!
