I have been in education for 30 years, starting my teaching career in 1996.
My curriculum has included almost all science areas over the years. My BA degree is from Southern Illinois University with additional classes taken at University of Montana, Missoula, University of Northern Colorado, Greeley. I bought a home and lived in Montana before I moved back for family connections in Illinois. I love to travel and have been to 49 of 50 states with two trips to Alaska. Science is my passion and I love nature and almost all activities in the outdoors. Hunting, Fishing, Camping, Hiking, Skiing, Boating are some of my favorites. I have raised 4 children that were all educated in the Midland district and believe the teachers in the school system are excellent. Midland has proven to be strong in academics with WYSE Academic Challenge, Envirothon and AP program success.
