About me

About me...While growing up, I went to school in Du Quoin, IL.  I loved to swim and ride my bike!

After high school, I went to college at Indiana University where I graduated with a Bachelor's in Science in Special Education.  I have a Master's degree in Special Education from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale and a certificate in General Administration from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville.  Currently, I am working towards a certificate in Library Science from Chicago State University.

After we moved back to Illinois, I have worked in Special Education for 20 years, until this year where I have started as the Teacher Librarian at Sparta Lincoln School.

In my personal life, I have been married to my wonderful husband, Marc for 25 years.  I have two beautiful children Madison and Zackary. We have two crazy dogs named Auggie and Gigi.
