Welcome! I am ecstatic about just teaching the 8th graders this year. My goal is to make learning fun and challenging! I will seize every opportunity to foster a love of learning and a desire for knowledge through a wide variety of different teaching techniques! After earning my teaching degree from Eureka College, I was set on teaching elementary. I never dreamt in a million years (hyperbole) that I would be teaching junior high. Well, this is the start of my 28th year, and I have never looked back. Something about this age group captures my interest---hook, line, and sinker (idiom)! Let's do this!!!
