     Hello.  I would like to welcome you to my webpage and to tell you a little about myself.  I have been the LRE Facilitator at Jerry Ross for the past 6 years.  I started at Winfield Elementary in the fall of 2002.  Prior to that I taught a self-contained classroom for students with emotional and learning disabilities at Lake Street Elementary in Crown Point.   
         I am a native of downstate Illinois.  I am a graduate of Southern Illinois University in Carbonadale, Illinois.  Go Salukis! I taught in my hometown for one year and then moved to northwest Indiana upon marrying my husband Thomas.  We have a seven year old son, Trey, who is a second grader at Trinity Lutheran School in Crown Point.
         I love to read, work outside in my yard, and get together with friends.  I also enjoy spending time with my 4 nephews and family in downstate Illinois. I grew up with 3 brothers and come from a very close family.  I try to get back home as often as I can.
