A little about me...
I am very grateful to be at River Trail School for the second year. I have taught at Viking for 4 years, Prairie Trail for 8, and am back teaching middle school - my favorite age!
I have a very unique position at River Trail. I get to teach science and social studies to 7th graders and composition for 7th and 8th graders.
When I'm not at school, I enjoy hanging out with my husband, Chris, and two high-school girls, Haley (17), and Kelsey (15). I love to travel, walk in the forest preserve, and go to the movies.
I look forward to another great school year at River Trail!
