After receiving my teaching degree from Illinois State University in Special Education in 1983, I received my Masters degree in Computer Education. I have been teaching for many years and have taught every grade level from kindergarten through eighth grade. I have been in Palos District 118 since 1993. I teach instructional Language Arts blocks for the 7th and 8th grade. I also have an Academic Resource class for the 8th graders. I am the co-sponsor for the Yearbook and the Palos South Red and White Report newspaper.
