Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelors in Physical Education and Health Studies Endorsement in Special Education
With a degree in physical education and health, I have a strong passion for living a healthy lifestyle. I taught for 5 years prior to coming to AVM and Valley View School District. I taught in Calumet City at Wentworth Jr. High for 5 years before making AVM my home away from home! I began working at AVM in 2014. I am also certified to teach special education and enjoy working with a diverse population of students. Supporting students to succeed as a contributing team member and helping them set attainable goals are a large part of our PE curriculum at AVM. I look forward to getting to know my students and what motivates them to try their best and be successful!
I am also a JV softball coach, cheerleading coach, and intramural sponsor at AVM. Working with the students & building positive relationships outside of the classroom are things I enjoy most about my job!
Outside of teaching and coaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors, and staying active!
