Meet the Teachers
I am very excited to join the wonderful staff and students at Grass Lake School as the PreK teacher! I have taught PreK, Kindergarten, and in 1st thru 8th Grade Classrooms as a Teacher, Substitute Teacher, and Instructional Assistant and have Degrees in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. I was also a day care provider in my home while being a stay at home mom to my three kids- Shayla, Jesse, and Katie. I have lived near this area for over 20 years and I love spending time with my family, watching my kids play sports, doing scouting activities, going on hikes, bike riding, and exploring nature and the beach. I am looking forward to the new adventures and exciting discoveries we will be making here in PreK at GLS!
I'm so happy to see all the new and second year preschoolers. I have worked at GLS for the past 11 years as an instructional aide and have enjoyed working with the pre-k for the past 3 years. I am involved with my church Prince of Peace as a volunteer in different ministries. I have 3 awesome sons Matthew, Chris and Ryan. I am grateful to live in Lake Villa near a lake where I've enjoyed many summer afternoons swimming. I also love to walk in nature and reading.
