The best part of being a teacher for me is that I am now meeting many of my students as parents and seeing what wonderful people they have become.  I began teaching as an aide at North Suburban Special Education where I stayed while I  earning my bachelor's degree at Northeastern Illinois Unversity where I graduated cum laude.  I worked as a 7th and 8th grade science teacher for five years at a private school before coming to Round Lake.  I was hired as a Science Spedial Education teacher at Round Lake High School but my real passion was and is middle school students.  After a year at the high school I began teaching at John T Magee. I have taught 15 years as a science special education teacher but then needed a change and taught the last ten years as a general education science teacher.  I have earned at master's degree ast National Luis University and I have endorsements in special education, science, and english language learning. It has be amazing to watch the changes that have been made in the district over the past 25 years.

I am available for student or parent contact at my district email: anytime before 9:00 PM or at John T. Magee 847 546-8800 ext 32644.
