B.A. Elementary Education, Illinois State University

M.S. Guidance and Counseling, Northeastern Illnois University


I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.  After teaching in the Chicago Public Schools for 10 years, I received my Master’s Degree in Guidance and Counseling.  I was a guidance counselor at CPS, Schurz High School for 5 years.  After staying home with my 2 boys, I decided to go back into the classroom because I thought I could have more significant impact on children’s lives being a classroom teacher.  I am so happy with my decision!  I have been at Tamayo for 5 years. I host a chess club for primary students during the second half of the school year.

My husband teaches 6th grade at an Acero school.  My oldest son is  a sophomore in college studying engineering and playing division three soccer.  My younger son is a senior in high school. In my spare time, I enjoy playing tennis!
