Welcome to my website! I am looking forward to an exciting year teaching Literature and Language Arts at Haven Middle School. I have a passion for history and culture and I love literature so I consider myself to be one lucky teacher. I am a graduate of Lake Forest College, where I received my B.A. in Education and History. I earned my M.A. in History at Northeastern Illinois University. I grew up in beautiful west Michigan but I have lived in Evanston for many years with my husband, my two children, and my little fuzzy dog, Cooper.
