About Me

I am a lifelong learner who has had the privilege of learning along side my children (5-who are now adults) my students, colleagues and now my grandchildren.
As a graduate of Loyola University, BS in Psychology, my professional career started at Misericordia Home North; a wonderful residential facility that I am still involved with to this day. I also worked in a residential facility in Cleveland, Ohio for a year. My years working with children with various disabilities, offered an appreciation to the struggles of learning and making sense of the world that people can face; I am very grateful for these experiences.
My educational journey continued as I became involved at my children’s school, first as a volunteer, then as a staff member. I have had the opportunity to teach various subjects over the years. Presently I work with students from PK - 8th as a teacher in a Multimedia Center/Library and Computer Lab.
As a lifelong learner, I continued my own education, receiving my MEd in Educational Technology from Concordia University. As the field of education continues to integrate technology and curriculum, I enjoy sharing ideas and learning from my students and colleagues. I enjoy the energy and enthusiasm of our youth and adults as they discover new things and look forward to continuing our journeys together.

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” William Butler Yeats
