My previous experiences include 9 years in Cicero school district with experiences at the elementary and junior high level as an Assistant Principal and Art educator. Starting my 8th year as an administrator. I am excited to enter my 2nd year in West Aurora and here at Freeman.
I believe in the importance of building strong relationships and connections; supporting the whole child to grow into life-long learners, and reinvigorating/embracing the joy of learning.
In my spare time, I enjoy doing creative projects like candle making and painting, staying active , and spending time with my daughter, Ella. I have my Bachelor of Arts in Art Education from Eastern Illinois University, Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from Concordia University, LBS1 Endorsement; Have received the award of Illinois Art Education Association's Early Professional of the year and Illinois Art Education Association's Administrator of the year.
