About Me...

 Staff PhotoI was born and raised in the Chicago area. After graduating college, I completed my student-teaching at Oakview Junior High. I spent my first year teaching in Galesburg, IL. However, I missed the big city and came home. I have spent the remainder of my career in New Lenox when I was hired to teach at Martino, but I moved over to Liberty once it opened. I am lucky to have spent the last 22 years in NLSD 122!

Favorite Thing About  Teaching:

The best part about teaching is watching a student's AHA, or eureka moment. It's so great to see the joy of learning on my students' faces.


Hobbies:
