This is my 2nd year having the privilege to work as a Special Education Aide for the district. I enjoy working with all of my students and watching them grow! In addition to my role as a Special Education Aide, I also serve on the district's PTO as the parent Vice President for Prairie Trail School. This past June I accepted an Extended School Year paraprofessional position at SEDOL (Special Education District of Lake County), where I supported a summer school class for children with autism.
I have three daughters that attend school in the district: one at Viking and two at Prairie Trail. In my spare time I enjoy reading (I am a huge Harry Potter fan!), playing softball, and visiting Six Flags with my family. I also recently rekindled an old passion by joining the Lakes Area Community Band as a clarinetist.
