About Me


I am very excited to be starting my 3rd year of teaching at Oster-Oakview School.  My children and I live in Mokena within the NLSD 122 school boundaries.  My oldest daughter, Jenna, is in her 3rd year at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and is studying business.   My middle daughter, Jordan, is a freshman at Joliet Junior College and loves her part time job at WaterStreet Boutique in Mokena.  My youngest child, Jason, is a 8th grader at Martino Junior High School and loves playing the baritone in the school band.  We enjoy spending weekends at my parents lake house in Michigan.  When I am not in school, I enjoy reading, cooking and riding my bike.  We love the CUBS!!!
