Just a little information to get to know me~

I was born in Mt. Vernon, Il and raised in Breese. I attended Mater Dei High School and played sports through out the four wonderful years I was there. I continued my education and sports career on a full athletic basketball scholarship at the University of Missouri @ St.Louis. Well, I was bored with just basketball so when that was over I played a little golf for the college. There will be no discussion about how that went! :) I graduated with a degree in Criminology and worked for May Company in internal and external theft.

I returned to school and chose McKendree College. I loved every minute of my experience in the education department. After receiving my teaching certificate I taught first grade at St. Augustine of Canterbury in Belleville for three years. I also coached the boys 5th and 6th grade basketball team.

I am beginning my seventh year with Shiloh and am very happy with my choice. Third grade was the grade I had always wanted to teach and I love everyday. Each day brings a new experience and a new kid into my life.

My son Cooper was born during the last school year on 12-12-12.  He has brought so much joy to my life that I am not sure what I had done before he came along. I have two great parents that live a block away from me. My sister and beautiful niece live in Atlanta.
