Welcome! This is my 16th year teaching in Chicago Public Schools and my 3rd year at BOYCP. I used to to be an English teacher, but have gradually moved into the role of Senior Seminar teacher in the Postsecondary department. I work closely with the counselors to help seniors plan for college and life after high school.
I earned my B.A. in English from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and my M.Ed. in Secondary Education with a concentration in English from DePaul University.
When I'm not in the classroom I enjoy exploring Chicago (the city of neighborhoods), traveling (prior to Covid-19!), cooking and baking, and just relaxing or spending time with friends and family.
