    Biography: Even though I grew up across the river in Fairview Heights and Belleville, IL, I've always loved St. Louis city. After graduating the Education program at McKendree University in Lebanon, IL, I moved to the St. Louis area to share my love of reading and writing with my students here at Roosevelt. My favorite writers include J.K. Rowling, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Chuck Palaniuk,  and Jane Austen. The 2019-2020 school year marks my 6th year teaching at Roosevelt High School.
