Hello everyone. I grew up in Hillsboro and graduated from HHS in 1987. I went to college for two years before deciding to take a job as a teacher aide at Coffeen Elementary School, where I worked for five years. I then transferred to Hillsboro High School and worked as a teacher aide for four years before deciding to go back to school to be a Special Education teacher. In 2001, I graduated from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville with a BS in Education and began teaching at Hillsboro High School. I coached volleyball at HJHS and HHS between 1989 and 1997. I enjoy spending time with my family, playing darts and bags, camping, fishing, and gardening.
