This is my eleventh year at Palos East, and my thirteenth year in education.  I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from Northern Illinois University.  I have worked for some great companies, including: The Chicago Stock Exchange, Andersen Consulting, and Comdisco as a Financial Analyst.  I went back to school in 2002.  In 2004, I received my Master’s Degree in Education from DePaul University.  I spent two years teaching fourth grade in Plainfield, Illinois.  In 2006, I received the Excellence in Teaching Award.  I am always excited to start each new day and see my students learn and grow.  I strive to be a role model for my students and help them to be the best they can be.

I enjoy all types of sports (GO WHITE SOX!).  I have completed two Chicago Marathons where I was a mentor for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training program.  I am doing my 18th triathlon on August 28th.  I enjoy tennis, golf, baseball, basketball, and hockey.
