• Welcome Dorn families to the 2019 - 2020 school year!  I'm super excited and proud to introduce myself as your child's Kindergarten/1st Grade teacher!  This is my 10th year working for North Palos School District 117.   The first 6 years employed as a classroom aide and/or a one-to-one classroom assistant has honestly helped me become the teacher I am today.
     
         Before Dorn Elementary, I was a Preschool Teacher at a daycare center and also a full-time Mom.  Once my daughter was a little older, I attempted to get a job working in a public school. I chose Dorn and Dorn chose me!   Dorn became my second home.  I have gained many great relationships at Dorn.  I consider Dorn as family.   In sum, I am the luckiest teacher ever because I get to spend every day making a difference in the world...teaching!  With my education, experience, and support, I believe that each child will have a successful school year!!!
