Here is a little bit about me; I have been working for Evergreen Park Elementary School District 124 since 2001. My passion for working with students began when I worked as a lunch mom at Northeast School. After two years as a lunch mom, I had the opportunity to work as a paraprofessional. I continued working as a paraprofessional while I was in school pursuing my Bachelor of the Arts degree in Elementary Education. Upon graduation from Trinity Christian College in 2007, I was hired as an EL teacher. Since 2007 I have been a part of the EL Department, except for one year when I taught sixth grade. I have a passion for English Learners and their families. This is my fifth year in the role of EL Instructional Coach and I am looking forward to working closely with my colleagues, students, and families. Along with my passion for teaching I consider myself to be a life long learner. In 2017 I earned my Masters of the Arts degree in Administration after completing the Illinois Principal Preparation Program at Concordia University. I am looking forward to the continued growth of our EL Programs and to watching our students be inspired, empowered, and achieve success - every day.
