Please go to the below link for my classroom website. The third grade team also has a Facebook page that is updated daily. For the Facebook page, parents will be sent an invitation because this is a closed group to protect our students.
I have been a teacher since 1991 when I graduated from Indiana University. I taught in Edwardsburg, Michigan for 13 years teaching Kindergarten-5th, and multiage K-2 & 3-5. I have also taught a profoundly autistic classroom for two years in Birmingham, Alabama and regular education in Alabama 3rd and 5th grade. I joined the G-A staff three years ago and LOVE it here. I also owned and operated a preschool, Alphabet Academy in Birmingham, Alabama.
I have been married for 24 years and have two wonderful children. My daughter will be a sophomore at Western this year and my son is a senior in HS. We have one dog, Cozmo and a cat named Toulouse (I didn't name him... LOL). We are proud to live in Galesburg-Augusta area.
