• I grew up in a small country town about forty-five minutes north from Normal in the small town of Dwight, IL.  I have always enjoyed learning about computers and creating projects using the Microsoft Office Suite.  My high school business teacher inspired me to become a business teacher.
    My college education started off at Kankakee Community College where I played volleyball for two years.  After graduating from KCC with an Associate's Degree, I transferred to Illinois State University to finish my Bachelor's Degree.  In 2012, I completed my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Illinois State University.  
    In my spare time, I enjoy playing and coaching volleyball, running, spending time outside, reading, watching movies, and spending time with my family and friends.  
    In December 2012, my husband and I welcomed our first child, Dylan, into the world.  He has been the greatest addition into our family.  Dylan is growing up way too fast but it's fun watching all the changes.
    In April 2016, my husband, and I were blessed with our second child, Anna.  She has been a fun addition and I'm very excited that I finally get to buy pink clothes and bows!  Dylan is a great big brother and loves playing with his little sister.
