Welcome to 2nd grade! I will post information & updates on Class Dojo this year! The best way to reach me is also using the messaging feature on Class Dojo. You can also reach me by e-mail at: 

I also have a website with links to reading and math websites that the kids can also use at home here.

About the teacher

This will be my 6th year teaching, my 4th year in Elmhurst. Before coming to Edison I taught kindergarten and 5th grade, but I must say that 2nd grade is my favorite! I also love running the Tech Club at Edison with Mrs. Costello. I am an Elmhurst College graduate and a previous Edison student. As for my life outside of school, last year I got engaged and will be getting married in June! I'm also a big Harry Potter fan and love to read. 



- The children are encouraged to bring a snack and water bottle to school each day.  As a school, we are asking for snacks to be fruits and vegetables only.   

- Every Friday is Edison Spirit Day. Wear purple and white to show your school pride!

- If your child has a change in their end of day or lunch routine, please send a note to school so that I am aware of this change.

Students can bring in items to pass out for their birthdays, but per district policy they cannot bring food items. Please make sure there are enough for everyone in the class. We have 21 students this year. Another option is to donate a book to our classroom library or donate a game!
