Contact Me - - 309-697-0621 - Ext. 1045

Hello !!! My name is Mrs. Padilla.  I graduated with my Bachelors Degree from Illinois State University in 1994. I earned my Masters Degree from ISU in 2000.  This will be my 29th year teaching at Oak Grove.  I live in Peoria with my wife Laura and 2 busy kids, Zoe (18) and Gabe (15).  We have 1 dog, and 2 cats. I am a avid fan of Wonder Woman and all things super hero. Don't tell anyone, but I may actually be Wonder Woman. I lead a very active lifestyle.  I love to exercise.  I run 5 miles every morning.  I spend time with my family, practice my ukulele, Indoor rock climb, compete in triathlons and read.  I also keep busy with my kids activities such as tennis, indoor climbing and getting Zoe ready for College at Illinois State University.  Some of my favorite things are . . . First Ascent Indoor Rock Climbing Gym, Peoria Triathlon Club, The Chicago Cubs, Chicago Fire Soccer, The Chicago Red Stars, The Chicago Bears, Diet Mt. Dew, Chocolate, Coffee, and anything sweet (because I am Danish).  

Here are a few important things I want to communicate with you.
