Dear Families,

Welcome to the start of a new school year at West Elementary School!  I hope you all have been able to relax and enjoy these summer months.  I am looking forward to working with you and am so excited to have your child in my classroom.  We are going to have a wonderful school year.

I am starting my tenth year of teaching.  I was in Schaumburg School District for seven years, and I am starting my third year in Sycamore.  I have taught a variety of grade levels including: first/second multigrade, second grade, fourth grade, and fifth/sixth multigrade.

I was born and raised in Sycamore and was a Sycamore High School graduate.  In 2007 I graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor’s degree in elementary education.  Pursuing my love of reading, I completed a Master’s in Reading program from Olivet Nazarene University in 2012.

We will begin the first week of school going over classroom expectations, procedures, and getting to know each other.  It is going to be a great year, and I look forward to working with you.  Please feel free to email me with any questions you might have.
