Welcome Page

Welcome back!  I am so thrilled to be here for my seventh year!  I have been teaching for the last 19 years in District 204 and have enjoyed teaching and learning with each and every one of my students. I love learning about each student and the country their family is from as well as information about their culture.  Learning is so fun no matter how old you are.   I am looking forward to watching each student grow and learn as I help them to access academic content through language skills and strategies.  Please contact me if you would like to share any traditions, teaching of languages you know or about a country you grew up in for our famous Multicultural Club.   Here's to an awesome year!
