I have been in education since 1999. I have worked in Adams 12 School District starting in 2002. I have been elementary and middle levels classroom teacher as well as a School Counselor between 2004 and 2015. After a return to my hometown in a Chicago suburb during 2015 to 2021, I have returned to the state that I love and the school district I also love. I am currently a Social Emotional Learning Specialist at Malley and very excited to continue in assisting with social/emotional needs of students and empower all to become life- long learners .
