Van Buren Elementary School
Grade taught; 1st grade
Years of teaching: 13
My husband Jason teaches at Plainfield Middle School. We have three children and another due in April! Our sheepdog Harry loves to have all of us in the same room.
My favorite part of teaching is watching my students grow as readers and writers. There is nothing more rewarding than listening to a child read from a favorite book or his/her own writing. The facial expressions of pure joy my first graders get when they realize they can read and write is amazing!
I am also blesses to be a part of such an amazing school. My colleagues are my friends and I have always felt a sense of "home" at Van Buren Elementary. Our staff has a wonderful time together during and outside of school. Even parents and volunteers comment on how welcoming Van Buren is!
