I have been teaching in the New Lenox school district since I graduated, and I absolutely love it. I have been a 7th grade language arts teacher, a 5th grade general ed. classroom teacher, a middle school cycle/elective teacher, and I have been in 8th grade language arts for four years. Language arts is my passion. I love reading and writing, and my biggest goal is to give my students an appreciation for both.
I am also the speech and drama coach, and I love helping students improve their acting/performance skills as well.
The Harry Potter series, The Hunger Games series, and anything by Kurt Vonnegut, Alice Hoffman, or Juliet Marillier.
