         I have worked for the Decatur Public Schools for over 27 years. My first 25 years of teaching were out in Piatt County, Monticello, and Bement. Then I came to Decatur and continued to teach Early Childhood at Pershing School. I have found a wonderful teaching community at Pershing School.

        I live in White Heath, Illinois wtih my husband Joel and my two children Jeremy and Abby. We have 2 dogs, Oscar and Ollie and 2 cats, Little Bear and Angel.
