This school year will mark my 30th year of teaching.  I have spent the majority of that in IPS.  I started my teaching career with IPS at Shortridge and now I am returning.  I have also worked at Crispus Attucks and Arsenal Tech High Schools.  I am excited to be back at Shortridge and am ready to embrace the many changes that have occurred since I left.  I will be the Special Education Specialist.  This is my 4th year in this position.  I have also worked as a Compliance Monitor, Resource teacher, classroom teacher, and inclusion teacher. 

I have been married for 23 years and have 3 wonderful children: Jessica, Trevor, and Andrew.  I am soon to be an empty nester and am looking forward to this next chapter in my life.  My family and I love sports and traveling.  We are very involved in out church and have gone on several mission trips.
