     I am a native of Crown Point and a current resident of Schererville.  I am a graduate of Crown Point High School who attended Purdue University Calumet and received a degree in Business Management.  My true passion is teaching and I returned to school at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in elementary education.  Prior to joining the Jane Ball family, I taught 2nd, 4th and 5th grade at Lincoln Elementary School in Hammond.  I have been married for 4 years and have one child, Layla.  We also have two large dogs and two big cats.  During hockey season you can find me watching the Chicago Blackhawks with my husband and daughter, and sometimes I even get to go to the games.  My spare time is spent reading about animals and my two favorite books are “Rescuing Sprite” and “Marley and Me.”  I also enjoy reading nursery rhymes and Dr. Seuss books to my daughter.
