Welcome McKendree!


I graduated from McKendree Univerysity in Lebanon, IL in 2013, with a degree in Education and middle school endorsements in ELA, Social Sciences, and Arts. The following summer, I moved to rockford to take my first teaching position at GRCS.  I have spent my time teaching a variety of subject areas including Math, Science, and Social Studies My ultimate goal is to serve the needs of all the scholars I can, to prepare them for high school, and prepare them to go forward in their educational careers to college. 


During my years at GRCS, I have had the pleasure of being an 8th Grade Pathway instructor. In this I have had the great honor of escorting some fansastic scholars to Washington D.C. We have had some awesome adventures on this trip! Every year gets better and better. I anticipate this will be no different.


I am happy to say this is my 6th year teaching at Galapagos, and as every year, I can't wait to see what this one brings.There are many beneficial resources to access under the quick links tab, please take a moment to explore them with your scholars.
