Grade: Reading Specialist
Years at PJ23: 10
Hometown: I was raised in Chicago but my husband and I now own a house in Elk Grove Village
What I love about teaching: I love seeing the look on a child’s face when he or she learns something new. I wanted to teach since I was a little girl. My sisters, cousins and I played “school” frequently.
Fun fact: My husband is a huge film fan, so I have met several movie stars: Richard Dreyfus, Corey Feldman, Jonah Hill, Linda Blair, Bruce Campbell, Henry Winkler, Penny Marshall, and Cindy Williams.
Favorite Place to Travel: Riviera Maya, Mexico. My husband and I won a trip there years ago and I absolutely loved it! We swam with the dolphins, laid by the ocean, fed turtles in the ocean, went snorkeling, and saw some amazing shows.
