This is my tenth year at MHS.  I feel very privileged to work in such an awesome school.  Previously,I also worked at Bourbonnais Upper Grade Center teaching 8th grade English and at Lincoln-Way Community High School teaching 9th and 10th grade English.  A little-known fact about me is that I was the head Girls Swimming  coach at Lincoln-Way in 1993.  I have three daughters, aged 20, 18, and 15. My children love sports and music and I am very involved in teaching them music.   In my free time, I write music and sing and play keyboards and drums in a local group.
