I feel God called me to teach in Lutheran Schools from a very young age.  I’ve always loved school.  I attended Lutheran schools my whole life, and know that was God’s plan in preparing me for a life in Lutheran education.  My missional passion is teaching Jesus.  I love to teach and love the opportunity to share the awesome message of God’s great love for us through the venue of the classroom.

Second to my relationship with my Lord is my relationship with my family.  I am blessed with my husband Marc for 24 years and our two sons Luke(20) and Ethan(17).  My interests and hobbies are with my family whether it be attending athletic events, taking vacations, or just spending time together.

One fun fact:  I love to sing and during my high school years at Walther I had the opportunity to sing The National Anthem at a White Sox game and a Chicago Bulls game.
