I am happy to be in my tenth year as a teacher here in the New Lenox district! I have been here at Martino Junior High School for a total of eight 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org), 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 during the morning between 8:00 and 9:00 AM. Thanks for stopping by!
