AP Statistics

This school year is my 26th year teaching. I taught 4 years in the suburbs of Chicago, 3 years for a small private school, and since 2001 have taught at Jacksonville High School. I received a Masters of Education at Illinois College in 2015.

One of my high school teachers told me that I would make a great math teacher. A wonderful middle school teacher that I was paired with during my sophomore year practicum made me teach a lesson. It was then that I knew my true calling was in fact teaching.
