Hi! I am a student in CTER14. I live in Chicago, grew up in Arlington Heights, IL. I am currently a second grade teacher in Glenview, IL, and this is my fourth year teaching at my school. Before teaching, I was an undergrad at UIUC, graduating with a degree in Elementary Education! I LOVE being an Illini! Immediately after graduating in 2007, I enrolled in the online Middle Grade Endorsement classes through the College of Education, so I am familiar with the online learning process we will be using.
When I am not working at school, I am a part-time swim coach for a local age-group club swim team. I live with my brother, Brian, who is a grad student at Northwestern, and my dog, Bodhi, a wild, but sweet black lab .
