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. 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!

I have been teaching at a Catholic school (preK-8th) for the past 6 years in Rockford, IL   I enjoyed watching my students grow every year, starting from 4 years of age. 

This past July, my daughter and I relocated to Jacksonville, NC to be closer to my son.  My son is a United States Marine stationed at Camp LeJeune.  My daughter is a chef/baker.

I am a fan of:

Chicago Blackhawks

Rockford Ice Hogs

Chicago Cubs

Chicago Bears


I enjoy:

Running, Bicycling, Tennis, Badminton, Ping pong, Pickleball, Kayaking, Bocce ball, Corn hole, THE BEACH!
