I began teaching at Romeoville High School in August, 2002. Throughout this time, I have taught Algebra and Geometry. I also work as a ticket taker at football and girls basketball games.
Prior to teaching, I graduated from Lyons Township High School, located in LaGrange, Illinois. Upon graduation, I attended Illinois State University where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Mathematics Education. I continued my education and enrolled at Northern Illinois University where I earned my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I have been married since 2007. My husband and I have a daughter who was born in 2016.
My husband and I participate in the Hustle up the Hancock every February. This event raises money for the Respiratory Health Association. We also participate in the Avon 39: The Walk to End Breast Cancer every June.
