I have been a teacher for 21 years. My first five years, I taught at The Milwaukee Spanish Immersion School. Then, I came to Banting Elementary School. I taught 5K Bilingual Kindergarten for five years and then Dual Language 5K for the last eleven years. I earned my early childhood teaching degree from Cardinal Stritch University. I earned my master's degree in Creative Arts in Learning from Lesley University. I also earned my Bilingual/ESL certification from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. I live on a 5 1/2 acre hobby farm in Pewaukee. My pets include 2 miniature donkeys, 2 pigmy goats, 4 ducks, 19 chickens, 1 Juliana pig, 6 dogs, and 6 finches. My husband and I are raising our 15 year old grandson Anthony who is an alumi of Banting. We love to travel and fish when we're not tending to our animals.
