• Welcome to 5th Grade!

    Here is a little bit about me!


    I was born and raised about an hour north of Chicago, IL. I graduated with my bachelors degree from Northern Illinois University and moved to New Jersey this past December (2020). I became a permanent subsitute teacher at McKinley while my New Jersey teaching license was processing. Therefore, this will be my 1st year teaching in Stafford. In Illinois, I student taught in a 4th grade classroom, but I am very excited to be moving up to 5th grade this year. 


    In my free time, I enjoy going to the beach and spending time with my fiance and my dog (Rizzo). My fiance and I also love to travel. Some of our favorite vacations spots include Florida (Disney), going on cruises, and traveling internationally (hopefully we will get back to doing this after COVID).


    I am looking forward to getting to know all of my students and having an awesome year. My goal is to create a safe, positive and inclusive learning environment for all students. Not only am I excited to be your teacher, I also can't wait to find out all the new things I will learn from each and every one of you!


    I value building positive relationships with my students and families so please feel free to reach out anytime! I am so happy that you are in my class and can't wait to see what this year has in store for us.
