About Me...

 Staff PhotoI was born and raised in the Chicago area. After graduating from 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 23 years in NLSD 122!

Quick Facts...

  Years Teaching:

  Graduated From:

  Southern Illinois University (B.A.)
  Governor's State University (M.A.)

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.


Of course, I love to read.  I live in Chicago, so I enjoy visiting all of the  different neighborhoods around the city.  I also love trying new  restaurants, attending theater productions, and visiting museums.

Favorite Book(s):

I can't list just one. My favorite writers/poets are Edgar Allan Poe, Ray Bradbury, Laurie Halse Anderson, Lois Lowry, Sharon Draper, Langston Hughes, Dante Alighieri, Rick Yancey, Christopher Pike, Shakespeare, I could go on...
