I am a 3rd grade teacher at Heritage Elementary School entering my 7th year of teaching in the Unified School District of De Pere. I earned my Bachelor degree in Business Administration at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, while being a member of the Green Bay Women's Basketball team. After graduating I worked with an American Family Insurance agent and then returned to UWGB to get my teaching certificate. While student teaching at Heritage Elementary I also worked with at-risk children at Macht Village Programs. I enjoy spending time with my Great Dane, Nala, coaching basketball, and spending time in the gym with my husband Cordero. I feel that sports have taught me many life lessons to shape me into the person I am today. Teamwork, responsibility, accountability, respect, and time management, are just a few of the life lesson skills that I teach in my classroom to help my students become successful in their years beyond school.
