About Me :)
A little bit about me...
*raised in Cary, IL (about 2 hours straight east of PC) and graduated from Cary-Grove High School.
*Attended NIU (Go, Huskies!), where I met Mr. Scott (the current Athletic Director and Junior High Language teacher).
*Lived in Rockford, IL for four years, working as a teacher at KinderCare.
*Two daughters: Janette, a 2009 PC Graduate who lives in Kalamazoo, MI with her husband Mike, and Gwendolyn, a 2010 PC Graduate who lives in Chicago, IL (working towards a Masters Degree in Social Work)
*Original director of the Pearl City Daycare, opened in 1994 (which brought my family to Pearl City!). Happy 25th Anniversary to the Daycare!!
*Worked at the daycare for four years, babysat at my home for a few, then began working as a one-on-one aide at Pearl City School (2 years) and a remedial aide (3 years).
*This is my 13th year in 6th grade--each year being a brand-new experience with a brand-new group of kids--so all added together, this is my 22nd year working for the Pearl City School District--woohoo!
