I love being a problem solver, collaborating with others, and building belief and confidence in those around me. My heart has always been in education and leadership. I was a tutor, summer league volleyball coach, student council president, and team captain throughout high school. Since then, I have taught kindergarten through calculus. From Streator to Mt. Vernon and Galesburg to Mulberry Grove, I have spent most of my career as a middle school math teacher with a few years in middle school language arts. I have coached volleyball, basketball, cheerleading, and track at the junior high level, and was a volleyball coach at Streator Township High School.
My husband, an educational administrator, and I live in Greenville with our two children. My daughter is a sophomore and my son is in eighth grade. Both of our children are very active in athletics and fine arts. We have two fur babies, coton de tulear mixes, in our house, Willie and Waylon. I am finishing my educational leadership degree through EIU this year and am excited to complete the degree so I can focus more on my family and my students.
I am excited to get to know more students and families from the community this year. I look forward to partnering with each of you to make this a year of growth and success for our HJHS students. Strong partnerships rely on effective communication. When questions or concerns come up, please contact me so we can find solutions together. Thank you in advance for your patience as we work through this 2020-2021 school year with the pandemic, a new math curriculum, and new technology tools.
