I attended both Lewis University and Moraine Valley Community College before earning my degrees at Illinois State University. I have a B.S. in English and a Master of Science Degree in Writing with a focus on Teaching Composition at the Community College Level. I have taught Composition at Western Illinois University, South Suburban College and the University of St. Francis. I have taught as a substitute teacher, and as a Tour Guide at ButterPrint farm in Monee, Illinois, I taught students covering the 1910 Museum, the Prairie Tour, and the Nature Museum. Whether it involved new automotive technology features or capturing best practices for knowledge-sharing databases, I have always been passionate about teaching others. Subjects I especially excel in are Language Arts/Writing, History, and Math. In my spare time I love to garden and play catch with my son.
