I'm the Strategic Reading Teacher at FMS and I teach students in grades 6, 7, and 8. This is my 10th year at Freedom and I absolutely love being part of the Freedom Family and working with my students to help reach their own personal reading potential. I graduated from Illinois State University (Go Redbirds!) and Olivet Nazarene University. I'm married with two kids; Peter, my husband, is a middle school math teacher in Elmhurst, IL. Our kids, Brayden (6 and in 1st grade) and Olive (4 and in Pre-K) keep us very busy but in my spare time I enjoy reading, shopping, and spending time with my friends and family.
