I am currently going on my 15th year of teaching.  During my first two years of teaching, I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Science at Grant Park Middle School.  I then made the decision to take a job in my hometown of Manteno.  I am currently in my 13th year of teaching at Manteno Middle School, where I teach 8th grade Science and Social Studies.  I enjoy working with the students and watching them succeed.  I also am the MMS Student Council Sponsor and STRIDE Leader. 

My husband Jon and I enjoy all of our different adventures.  We love to go snowmobiling during the winter and boating during the summer.  I also enjoy harvesting my huge garden and growing sweet corn. I have a daughter who is about 7 1/2 years old named Addison.  She is growing up fast and has a wonderful personality. I also have a set of twins, Jason and Logan, who are currently 3 1/2 years old.
