Welcome back for the 2021-2022 school year! 
I am starting my 9th year at Garvy teaching Primary Resource Special Education in the subjects of English Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies and Health.
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Special Education from Western Illinois University in 2012.
This school year, I am the chair for Student Council.
I plan to coach volleyball, basketball, floor hockey and I hope to coach Girls On the Run for my 8th year!
When I am not working, I enjoy playing softball year round; 1 league during the winter, 5 softball leagues during the spring/summer + a handful of tournaments, and 4 leagues during the fall -- all differ in what ball; 16 inch, 14 inch hard ball and 14 inch mushball.
I also enjoy bowling with my family/friends for a once a month league.
I love taking my dog Crosby (Pitbull Mastiff) for walks in the mornings and then playing with him when I get home from work.
Over the past year, I have looked into rescuing a kitten. No shelter would let me adopt due to the type of dog Crosby is. I was able to rescue a kitten from a friends backyard. He is 8 weeks old and his name is Loki (the God of Mischief) and by golly the name suits him.
I am so excited to begin this school year and to experience all the new adventures this school year brings! 

Any questions, comments or concerns please do not hesitate to email me.
