  • Welcome to my class!

    Dear New and returning Spartan students & parents: 

    It's hard to believe but it's that time of the year again – the beginning of a new and exciting 2020-2021 school year. Welcome back! Parents, you are apart of the teaching staff and are just as important to your childs education as we are, so thank you for trusting us with your children.

    I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and express my excitement about working with your child this 2019-2020 school year. I'm a mother of two adult children. I enjoy interior decorating, traveling, learning, and spending time with family. I am a graduate of Cambridge College where is received a Master's Degree in Education and a graduate of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale with a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Care Management. I am no stranger in the field of education. This is my 16th year in education and my 6th year teaching at Glenn Hills High School. I've taught math, science, Social studies and Literature, and currently the JV Cheerleader coach. GO SPARTANS!! I love teaching English Language Arts and Social Studies because ELA allows children to express their written and linguistic talents and Social Studies allows students to learn about the importance of History and geography, as well as understanding current events, and cultures.

     I care deeply about each of my students and I believe students can grow and develop by collaborating and expectations are set high for their achievement. I have high expectations of all my students and I share two beliefs which are, there isn't anything students cannot accomplish and achieve if they maintain a positive attitude towards learning, and remember that success is achieved by deciding and making a commitment to towards learning. I understand that this year students are introduced to a new platform of learning; however, I expect my students to be ready to engage, explore, explain, and collaborate through our new Canvas platform.
