I wear a lot of hats. My favorite hat says “Mom” but really should say a lot more (i.e., chauffeur, cook, hairstylist, tutor, makeup artist, bank, psychologist…you get the picture). I’ve also been a travel soccer parent for the past 10 years which is an exhausting hat to wear (but I wouldn’t have it any other way). My prior hats said attorney and elementary Spanish teacher (hated the former, loved the latter). When 3 back surgeries gave me a lot of time, I decided to combine my passion for teaching with my love of color and design in order to create learning resources for both teachers and parents. I began to primarily create Spanish resources and then taught myself Photoshop, Illustrator, and WordPress to enhance them. I created my blog, Fabulous Classroom, to share these as well as other resources, as well as tips and tricks regarding how to use them. I have also used my graphic design and web skills to create numerous logos (including Fabulous Classroom’s), websites, and other media for a wide variety of people and organizations. My favorites are the charity organizations that I donate time and services to, as I love giving back to my community.
As a passionate educator, I believe that all children, regardless of their backgrounds or social status, should receive the same level of education. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a Minor in Spanish from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Juris Doctor from Loyola University Chicago School of Law. I live in the Northern Chicago Suburbs with my husband, Jason, 19-year-old son Sam (when he is home from college), and 16-year-old daughter Alexa. I always LOVE connecting with people, so please contact me whenever you have a question, would like to see a new or particular product, or just want to say hi!
