I have been teaching in the content area of Family and Consumer Sciences for the past 16 years. I have been teaching here at Eisenhower High School for the past 10 years. The courses I teach include Child Development and Care, Child Development Lab (Preschool), and Teaching Internship. See attached files for course information including course overview, grading policy, test retake policy, and opportunities offered within the high school courses.
My educational background includes earning my Bachelor of Sciences from Eastern Illinois University. I earned my first Master's degree in School Improvement from Olivet Nazarene University. I earned my second Master's degree in Early Childhood Education from Concordia University.
I sponsor the Future Educators of America club. The club is geared towards high school students who want to take on leadership roles, positively influencing others. The club promotes providing high school students with the skills, experiences, and resources needed to be successful role models and educators in and out of the school setting, working effectively with all age groups. Some opportunities can include tutoring, volunteering, and community involvement. Please visit the Activities Page for more information. Future Educators of America
