I am beginning my 25th year of teaching, all right here at Fairlawn. I began teaching in 1992 in the 4th grade. That year I taught reading and social studies and since then I have taught grades 3-8. I graduated from Fairlawn in 1988. I received my B.S. in Elementary Education from Urbana University in 1992 and my masters in education from Urbana in 1996.
I am married to Matt, who is our Middle School math teacher. We have two sons, AJ and Luke. AJ will be a sophmore in the fall at Edison, majoring in criminal justice and plays for the men's basketball team. Luke is a junior here at Fairlawn and plays golf, boys' basketball, and baseball. My interests are spending time with my family, watching my boys play sports, gardening, vacationing with my family, fishing, and taking our boat out as much as possible. I am looking forward to a great school year.
