Degrees and Certifications:
I am a graduate of Northern Illinois University. I earned both my Bachelor's degree and my Master's degree from NIU. I have been teaching at Kenyon Woods Middle School since our opening in 2004, and before that I taught a variety of social studies and art classes at Gifford Street Alternative High School. I love to travel and can't wait to see what I visit next! I am a believer in letting students explore our world so they are well informed, involved citizens.
On the personal side, I am married to a very patient guy. We have one son and his family includes a very curious toddler. I garden (although this year I have not won the battle), and I read voraciously.
I can't wait to meet all of the new students this year!
