I received my undergraduate degree in Economics from the University of Rochester and taught high school for two years before staying home to raise my three sons. After twelve years, I returned to school and received my Master’s degree in teaching and my ESL endorsement from National Louis University.  I also earned my National Board Certification in 2011. I started teaching in East Maine School District 63 at Stevenson Elementary School. While at Stevenson, I taught 5th and/or 6th grade for eleven years. In 2016, I became the Instructional Coach at Nelson School.
