I attended Monmouth College and graduated with a double major in education. As a result, I hold both a K-9 Elementary Education certificate as well as a K-12 Special Education certificate. Later, I earned a Master's degree from National Luis University.
I taught for 2.5 years on the east side of Joliet before making my way to Hadley. I have been here since 1998 and have taught all three middle school grade levels. I ran the special education instructional program for 3 years and the remainder of my time I have co-taught at the resource level.
I have two children, both in high school, and I love animals, naps, Da Bulls, Dunkin' Donuts, and Coke Zero.
