I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor’s Degree in elementary and Basic Education with a focus on math. I went back to school in 2015 and I graduated in 2017 with a Master’s in Education centered on material development.
I started babysitting and tutoring after school when I was at the university. I did a work and travel program in the USA as a nanny for two summers. I was a home classroom teacher in an elementary school in a first grade classroom for three years. I also worked in a daycare for the last year.
I really love teaching. In my free time, I enjoy reading and spend time with my daughter and my nephew. I love traveling and I try to explore the world when I can.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree from UW-Whitewater with a Pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade certification and an Urban Education Certification for Elementary through High School. I also have a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I have been an Early Childhood teacher since 1994. I have taught Kindergarten in Milwaukee and Kindergarten at Chavez Elementary school in Madison. These combined experiences have contributed to my success in the early childhood field. I have the incredible opportunity to work with almost everyone here at Kids Junction. This experience has allowed me to contribute and grow with the school.
I have a wonderful family. My son, daughter, husband and I enjoy many outdoor activities together. I also enjoy cooking, reading, sports and traveling.
I received my degree in Early Childhood Education/Elementary Education from Evangel University in 2013. After spending another year in Missouri, my husband and I moved to Madison, where I received my Wisconsin teaching license in 2016, certified to teach children birth to age 12.
I have worked with children in various settings since I was 17 years old, including summer camps and after school programs. I was a kindergarten aide/long-term substitute, special education aide at West Middleton Elementary, and a lead teacher at another day care center prior to starting at Kids Junction.
I have been married to my husband for six years and have a sweet, vibrant son. In my spare time, I love to watch Wisconsin sports, bake, run, make frequent trips to Target, and spend time with my family.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with a math emphasis from Trinity University, Deerfield, IL. I have a Master of Arts in Elementary Education from Viterbo University, La Crosse, WI.
I have educated elementary aged students for over 25 years. I have taught at Kids Junction since 2015.
