Like many, I went through a few college majors before choosing education. I realized that all my volunteer work was in education. I tutored juvenile inmates working toward their GED; I coached writing for high school students; and I taught water skills at my local Chicago Park District. It was clear that education has always been my calling.
I found my family here at Bateman and they have been with me through my life milestones. I wed my best friend and became a mother of three. Brooke is 11 years old, Reese is 8, and Dylan is 6. All of my children attend a CPS school. I am a proud public school teacher and believe in public education.
