PE/Electives Teacher

My Why Story

Both of my parents were teachers, my mom P.E. and my dad Science teacher. They created that passion when I was little, and when I grew up knowing how much they touch the lives of their students. It mostly started when I was little playing Art Teacher. I would pass out construction paper and want them to draw a picture, but I loved art growing up. I have always loved for art: being in every art class in High School and a Teachers Aid. I played sports all my life since both my parents played volleyball I fell in love with that sport, so at age 11 I started playing for an elite volleyball Club in Illinois. I played 7 years in club and then went on to college to play volleyball. As the love for art I graduated at Elmhurst College with a Bachelors in Fine Arts. This is my first year teaching with PE and Art, which my dreams have finally come true. I am beyond excited to start this year!
