I started teaching business classes with IVHS in 2001 and continued when it became IVS. I taught business and computer applications for over 30 years at Shiloh High School in Hume, IL.
My mother and aunts were all teachers and my dad influenced me, also. In high school I discovered that I had an aptitude with the business classes and enjoyed them immensely so I pursued that in college. Several of my business education teachers at EIU were extremely influential and encouraged me to become a high school business teacher. I enjoyed teaching the students the hands-on skills and encouraging them for their future careers. I never regretted that decision!
