I am the new language arts and social studies teacher at St. Joseph Catholic School. I come to St. Joseph with 16 years of teaching experience. I have spent the last eight years at St. Paul of the Cross School in Park Ridge teaching language arts – the first four years in seventh grade, and most recently, in sixth grade. I began my teaching career at St. John Brebeuf School in Niles where I taught computer class to students in grades kindergarten through eighth. I am a 2003 graduate of Northeastern Illinois University where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in elementary education with an endorsement in both language arts and social studies.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling, being outdoors, and spending time with family and friends. I love watching and attending Blackhawks’ games and am a die-hard White Sox fan. I can often be found at Guaranteed Rate Field during baseball season.
