Welcome to Homer Junior High School. I am so happy to have you in our class! I received my bachelor’s degree in history from the University of Illinois and my teaching certificate through Trinity Christian College. I have a master's degree in Reading from Olivet Nazarene University, and I am the English as a second language teacher for the school. In addition to loving what I do professionally, I am a big fan of my own family, the Blackhawks, the Bears, and all things Star Trek, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Marvel and DC! I am looking forward to a great school year!
