    I began teaching in Saint Louis Public Schools in 2002.  Compton-Drew ILC Middle School has been my home for seven years and I feel that it is an honor to be a Dolphin.   My husband and I have three children.  The youngest of the three is the only one who lives in St. Louis.  I raise cockatiels, have a cat named Victor, and share a dog named Winston with my daughter.  I was born in Boston and spent a good part of my childhood in New England and Canada. I have lived most of my life in Saint Louis.  I love this area and have made it my forever home.     
    I am looking forward to the opening of the 2020-2021 school year.   I enjoy being in the classroom with the children.  They bring such energy and enthusiasm to the academic setting.  The Covid 19 pandemic has made new methods of instruction necessary.  Teachers and students are meeting the challenges of learning in a virtual setting.
    This year promises to bring an amazing wealth of new methods of learning on a variety of technology inspired platforms. It will be exciting to watch my new students expand their knowledger as they move through this virtual learning experience.
