Personal Background

I have been teaching and tutoring for about 26 years. I am from Canton, IL and have one brother. I have 3 children and enjoy attending all their extracurricular activities. I adopted my first puppy this spring and am loving my fur baby, Belle.

I think we’re starting to acknowledge that no matter how much we want teaching to be a science that we can prescribe and replicate, it’s also very much an art — a human profession that hinges on human connection and emotion.
