For the past 12 years I have worked as a classroom teacher. I began my teaching career in Melrose Park in 5th and 6th grades. Interested in working with older students, I made a move to Franklin Park to work as the 7th Grade Literature teacher at Hester Junior High.  At Hester, I taught 6 sections of Literature/Language Arts including one advanced class. I loved getting to know my students and helping them become stronger and more confident readers. My favorite part of teaching Literature was reading class novels with my students. When I was not in the classroom, I was able to coach the Hester Cheerleading Team and helped create the school-wide Student of the Month program. I look forward to working with new students through tutoring! 

I currently live in the western suburbs with my husband and three children. My daughter is 5 years old and my two sons are 3 years old and 6 months old.  We also have an Australian Shepherd named Sydney.
