Welcome to My Web Site!
This is my 11th year of teaching either Social Studies or Language Arts. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English degree from Bucknell University. I am a mid-life career changer after 10+ years working in Corporate America as a Marketing Writer for a high-tech company in Massachusetts. I grew up and lived all over New England before moving to Libertyville, IL in 2003. At this point, I went back to school to receive my Masters degree in teaching from National-Louis University. I am married with 2 grown sons, 2 grown step-daughters, 6 grandchildren, and 2 cats.
