Subject(s): 7th Grade American History Colonization - 1877, 8th Grade Elective Pre-Law

 After graduating from Illiniois Wesleyan University with a BA in History and a minor in education, I moved back to the St. Louis area and began my career with St. Louis Public Schools.  Over the course of my 24 years as a teacher, my desire to learn and grow as a teacher has led me back to the classroom to obtain my MA in History, MA in Gifted Education, MA in School Administration, and EdD in Educational Leadership.

Although I have lived in several different places (Chicago, IL, Osage, IA, Gillette, WY to name a few) St. Louis is the place I call home.  In fact, I live just under a mile from the McKinley building so you may see me walking to and from school or walking my dog (Woody) around the neighborhood.

I'm looking foward to my 3rd year as a teacher here at McKinley and my 1st year as the 7th grade American History Teacher!
