About Me

I 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 25 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.

Favorite Book(s):
I can't list just one!

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