About Me

"The best way to predict your future is to create it."  - Abraham Lincoln


          Hello! First let me say, thank you for wanting to know more about me. Teaching is my absolute favorite profession that I have had the pleasure of experiencing. I have an A.A. from College of DuPage and a B.A. from Benedictine University. I am a member of Kappa Delta Pi, Alpha Mu Gamma, and Phi Theta Kappa. I am also a member of the Illinois Reading Counsel, Teaching Tolerance, and ASCD (the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development). I grew up in Franklin, Tennessee and graduated from high school in 2005. I currently live in North Aurora, Illinois. My favorite movie is Beauty and the Beast and my favorite story genre is Modern Fiction. Puns are my favorite type of humor. If you do not know what puns are yet, don't worry, you will. I love to think and teach outside of the box. I always try to make lessons interesting and engaging and I look forward to the best year, yet!
