5th Grade Teacher

I am excited to teach 5th grade after having taught 3rd grade for the past seven years.  This will be my ninth year here at Longfellow.  After working for many years in Finance, I made a career change to Teaching and graduated with a Master of Arts in Education from National-Louis University in 2010.  I have since had the pleasure to work with 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders here in Oak Park at both Mann and Longfellow Elementary Schools.

I attended 5th grade in Miami, FL, where I mainly grew up.  I currently live in Oak Park with my husband and two sons who are 9th and 12th graders at OPRF.  I love to swim (long ago I was a competitive swimmer at Ohio State) and enjoy reading, gardening and traveling in my spare time.
