    About Me

    I grew up in Tinley Park, Illinois with my two parents and my brother until I attended the University of Iowa. In December 2016, I graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelors of Arts in Elementary Education and a reading endorsement. I then decided to start my teaching career in Iowa City. In January 2017, I became Alexander's building substitute. I am lucky to start my first year of teaching in a building I am very passionate about.
