I am so excited to be returning to the Lydiksen community this school year! My family and I recently moved here in June of 2014 from the Chicagoland area. I am a California native, but it took me a little while to end up 'back home.' I received my undergrad from Illinois State University with a degree in Elementary Education. I taught 3rd grade for five years. In that time, I went on to get my Masters in Reading Instruction from Aurora University. I've taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade during my 8 years of teaching.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two children. I love reading, being outdoors, and exploring new places. I am looking forward to a fantastic school year!
