Welcome to the Room 111 website!! I hope you will enjoy learning about what we are doing in our classroom.
This is my 20th year teaching at Huber Ridge.I truly believe this is a very special community and I love being part of the Huber Ridge family. Prior to moving to Ohio in 1997, I was a first grade and pre-K teacher in LaGrange Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, for 17 years.
I am a proud Illini having graduated from the University of Illinois in Champaign Il. I also have a Masters degree in Elementary Education from Ohio Dominican University.
My husband and I are the proud parents of three Westerville South graduates. Our oldest daughter, Kaitlin graduated from the University of Illinois and was an academic advisor at the University of Illinois until our grandson Andrew was born last Dec. 1st. She and our son in law Dan Kaste, along with Andrew, moved back to Westerville in May. She is an academic advisor at Ohio Dominican University. Our son Matt graduated from Ball State University and works for a non-profit working with youth in Chicago, IL where he lives. Our youngest daughter, Liz, graduated from the University of Illinois where she studied engineering. She is an engineer with L Brands. She worked as the site coordinator at the WARM lunch program at Ridgewood Park for two summers and enjoyed meeting many Huber Ridge families.We also have a very energetic 9 year old golden retriever, Kami!!!
My husband and I enjoy taking hikes in our wonderful Metro Parks with our family and visiting our National Parks. This summer we took a trip to the Grand Canyon. When we are not hiking I am loving being a Grandma for the first time and watching Andrew discover new things.
I truly love the joy of watching young children discover the world of reading and numbers and am excited about sharing this year with your child! I look forward to our partnership in your child's learning.
