Previous Work Experience:

  • I began teaching at Crete-Monee Junior High School in 1990. After taking time off for several years to be with my family, I returned to CMMS in 2004, moved to CSK in 2006, and returned to CMMS in 2010.

Hobbies, Extracurricular Activities:

  • Supporting my children's hobbies
  • Coaching an Odyssey of the Mind team
  • Spending time with friends and family
  • Reading as much as possible

Educational Philosophy:

  • Fair is not always equal.
  • My ultimate goal is to help develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. I hope my students become active, compassionate, and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

Favorite Quotes:
