Welcome to Homer Junior High School. I am excited to have you as part of my class. I received my bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education from Eastern Illinois University and I am currently working on my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration on Language Arts from the American College of Education. I enjoy reading, cooking, playing games and spending time with family and friends. In the classroom, everyday is exciting and new, and I try to pass this enthusiasm on to my students. Like Dr. Seuss said, "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." I’m looking forward to having a great school year!
