About Me...

 Staff Photo

I grew up in Orland Park, and as a small child, I always knew I wanted to become a teacher.  I earned my degree in Elementary Education in 2006 at Lewis University and interviewed for a maternity leave math position at Liberty Junior High.  I ended up doing 3 maternity leaves at Liberty that year, and was hired as a full-time teacher the following year.  I have taught 8th grade science for six years, and have been teaching 8th grade math since 2013.  I've also coached poms, and currently monitor science club and morning math.  Teaching is a wonderful profession, and I thoroughly enjoy coming into work each day to help students achieve their goals.
