Marian Central Catholic High School
English IH and Composition and Speech
I received my undergraduate degree from Marquette University, majoring in
English. I went on to receive my Masters of Education in Secondary
Education/English from Vanderbilt University. My teaching
career began in Deerfield, IL, where I taught for seven years. I left my
teaching job to stay home with my children while they were young, and I
started my own tutoring business to keep active in the world of
education. I also taught composition courses at McHenry County College.
This is my third year at Marian, and I will be teaching English I Honors and
Composition and Speech. I also work with the Marian Mentors program. I'm
looking forward to an exciting year
ahead, and please do not hesitate to email me at any time with any concerns or
I am married and have two young children who keep me quite busy and
entertained. Running is one of my favorite activities, but I also enjoy
reading, especially with my children, and I love to bake!
