• I have been a teacher at East Maine School District 63 for over 20 years. I have worked as a classroom teacher and as an ELL Resource Teacher.   I received my Bachelor in Education from Northeastern Illinois University, a Masters in Literacy from Northern Illinois University, and a School Leadership degree from Concordia University. One of my hobbies is playing volleyball which I started when I was 10 years old. I am also the 8th-grade volleyball coach for Gemini Middle School. When I'm not teaching or coaching, I am enjoying time with my husband and two girls.
