I've had the pleasure of working at Seven Oaks as one of the Preschool Special Education teachers for the past 5 years. Before moving to Idaho, I had lived my entire life in the south suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. After getting my teaching degree at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, I spent the next 7 years in various early childhood settings, as both a classroom teacher and paraprofessional. I worked in both special and general education classrooms, but it was the special education experiences where I knew I found my true calling... At this time I also happened to be at a point in my life where I was getting restless and in need of a change. So after months of consideration, I decided to go for it and and move to beautiful Idaho! Once I got settled in, I completed my second teaching degree at Boise State University to continue teaching early childhood education.
Even though I miss my family dearly, they understand and now have a place to visit! :) I honestly couldn't be happier to call this my place my home, which I so happen to share with my spoiled Great Dane mix puppy, Kooper and two goofy cats, Beau and Penny.
I feel like I have FINALLY found exactly where I'm supposed to be and cannot imagine doing anything else. I have learned and grown so much in the 5 years and I cannot be more excited to see what the future holds.
