About Me

Hello, First Grade Parents! Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! This is my 21st year teaching in Frankfort School District, and my 19th year in first grade!  I am so proud to be on the GP team!  I have been married for 20 years to my husband, Eric.  We live in the Bradley Bourbonnais area, where I grew up.  We have 16 year old twin boys, Brayden and Naythan, an 11 year old daughter, Madyson, and a cat named Rizzo.  I am excited to partner with you this year and teach your child.  I will keep you informed of everything that is happening through this webpage, Seesaw, and emails.  Please reach out through email or Seesaw with any questions you have!
Erin’s Law 2020-2021
We are required by Erin's Law to provide lessons on sexual abuse and prevention education. During the weeks of November 16th and January 25th, Grand Prairie Elementary School Social Workers will be teaching a lesson in your child’s classroom about the "Think First and Stay Safe" program. The lesson in November will cover the concepts of "Using My Built In Computer: Staying Healthy and Safe." The lesson in January will cover "Laws Help Protect Me: Kids Have Rights Too!" and "Listening to My Instincts: No Secrets".
Should your child have any questions, you may refer to the handout that will be provided to them on the day of the lesson. If you have additional questions feel free to contact a School Social Worker – Morgan Bilthuis, Rebekah Munch and Kelly McGovern
Erin's Law presentations will be the weeks of December 7-11 and January 25-29.  Bully Prevention presentations will be the weeks of November 16-20 and February 1-5.
