Hi!!  I am so excited to start a new school year and to work with you and your child.  Kindergarten is a wonderful year of learning and experiencing new things.  I have taught school 26 years (10 years in First Grade, 10 years as a School Counselor(k-5) and the last 6 years in Kindergarten.  I absolutely love teaching and seeing children learn new things.  I have twin daughters(Kaitlyn and Kacie) that are in their second year of college.  They attend college at North Central College in Naperville, IL(which is 30 miles from Chicago); this fall they will be studying abroad in Canterbury England.  My daughters will come by during the school year to work with your kindergartener and get to know them.  You will probably hear a lot about them and about Chicago and England.  I like to read, walk, travel, play games, and crochet.  I also love working with my flowers and have a special fondness for cardinals.  I love life and learning; and I try to instill in your child the love of lifetime learning.  To succeed in life you must be a lifetime learner!!  My favorite colors is yellow and I love cats(even though I don't have one now because I'm living in an apartment.  Please feel free to leave comments and tell me more about you!!
