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 morning math.  Teaching is a wonderful profession, and I thoroughly enjoy coming into work each day to help students achieve their goals.
