Hello Carolina Forest Elementary Families! I would like to tell you a little about myself. I was born in Chicago, Illinois, and when I was 4 years old my family moved to Addison, IL, a suburb near Chicago. I played 16" softball in middle school, and in high school I ran Cross Country and Track and was a member of the National Honor Society. After college I got married and we moved to Belvidere, IL when my children were entering elementary school. My daughter and son started running in grade school for a team called the Belvidere Tornadoes, a youth cross country team. I coached that team for 4 years, every year our team would go to the National Youth Cross Country race!! We've raced at Disney World, Virginia Beach, Nashville, and Decator, Alabama. My children went on to run through middle and high school (I coached high school girls cross country for one year). They sang in the Choir at school too!
This is my second year here at Carolina Forest, and I'm excited to teach all the students from last year and all the new ones that are joining us!
I am a fan of:
Rockford Ice Hogs
Running, Bicycling, Tennis, Badminton, Ping pong, Pickleball, Kayaking, Bocce ball, Corn hole, reading, dancing, and THE BEACH!
