Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor in Science : Elementary Education-Kindergarten through 9th Grade Endorsements in Science, Language Arts, and Social Science
Just as I had always envisioned, I was taking classes in college to send myself to work in a laboratory. A friend invited me to her classroom, and from that day on, I changed my course of study. I graduated from Southern Illinois University with a Bachelors in Science, focused in Elementary Education. Since I already had so many classes in science I was given an endorsement in Science, as well as Social Studies and Language Arts. Although my love for science is strong, I enjoy teaching reading to students. Seeing their eyes light up the first time they read a new word is a wonderful privillage.
When I am not at work, I spend time with my husband and two "energtic" dogs who keep us very busy! We enjoy traveling and camping. I think our favorite spots so far include the Badlands and Yellowstone! I also enjoy painting, playing tennis, and spending time with my wonderful family.
I am so lucky to be at Spaulding school for another wonderful year. There are so many exciting experiences to be had!
