Thank you for visiting the Jefferson Elementary School website.  It is an honor to serve as principal and to work with the students, staff, and parents of the Jefferson Patriots community.  

After graduating from Illinois State University, I began my career as a first grade teacher at Jefferson School.  After teaching health education lessons in several local schools, I returned to Morton to teach first grade at Lettie Brown for the past 12 years.  I completed a Master's in Curriculum and instrucation at Illinois State University and received my administrative certificate from Bradley University.  It is a blessing to work with such dedicated staff and students, and serve as the leader for Jefferson.

My husband and I and our four children love to spend time together on our country "farm" swimming, playing sports, riding bikes, reading, playing games, and more!  We have a dog, 3 kittens, and a rooster.  We stay very busy with school, sports, and church activities.  I enjoy running, singing, and reading a good book.

It is a privilege to be back at Jefferson School, where it is always a great day to be a Patriot!
