I am happy to be in my ninth year as a teacher here in the New Lenox district! I have been here at Martino Junior High School for a total of seven years, and I feel so fortunate to be in such a wonderful place.
This year, I am teaching four 8th grade language arts classes. Please utilize this website for updates in my classes’ curriculum along with any attachments that can be used if you need additional resources.
I respond fastest to email (email@example.com), but you can also call the school and leave me a voicemail at extension 6348. The best times to reach me by phone would be before school at 7:50 AM - 8:15 AM or after school until 3:30 PM. I am also available on blue days between 10:50-11::50 AM, and gold days from 8:30-9:30 AM
Thanks for stopping by!
