Degrees and Certifications:
I was born in Ohio, but my parents moved to Illinois when I was a year old, and I've lived in Illinois ever since. I have a younger sister. I graduated from Schaumburg High School, home of the Saxons! I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Art Education from Northern Illinois University, got married, and started teaching in U-46 in 1999...that was a busy year! Since then, I've had 4 kids and earned my Master's Degree from Olivet Nazarene University. This is my 22nd year teaching in U-46, and my second year at Channing.
