About the Teacher

Welcome! I am very excited about the upcoming school year! I am originally from Michigan and graduated from Michigan State University in 2009. I began teaching at Morton Junior High in 2011 and have really enjoyed my time on the Green Team! My husband works for Caterpillar and we have a 2 year old daughter named Tenley and our son, Grayson, was just born this summer. We currently live in Washington. I am very excited to welcome you to the Green Team and am ready for a great year!

 

Mission

My mission is to open my students’ eyes to how fun and exciting mathematics has the potential to be.  I have a passion for teaching and learning and plan to use that to create a safe and effective classroom environment!

About the Teacher
I grew up in Washington, IL. It is there where I attended grade school and high school. During high school I was involved with baseball, band, musicals, art club, and national honor society. I graduated from Illinois State University in 2010. While at ISU, I was also in the BRMM (Big Red Marching Machine) which played at the sporting events on campus. I did my student teaching at Morton High School. My first teaching job was at Triopia, a school in the Jacksonville, IL area. In 2011, I was at Morton High School teaching Freshman Biology and Sophomore Chemistry. I was also a freshman sponsor, national honor society advisor, and assistant freshman baseball coach. I got married over the summer of 2012 and my wife and I are currently living in Morton.

Mission for the Class
My mission as a 7th grade science teacher is to allow the students a chance to explore the world of science and experience the vast world around them from the classroom.

About the Teacher

Welcome to Geography! This is my seventh year teaching at Morton Junior High School. I grew up in Tremont and attended Illinois Wesleyan University. I am married to my husband Justin and we have two little girls at home. I love being a part of the MJHS staff and the Green Team! I look forward each year to meeting a new group of students, getting to know them, and getting to explore the world together. 

My Mission

My mission for geography is not only to help the students gain a better understanding for cultures and climates of other parts of the world but also to better understand how those cultures have influenced where we are today. I hope that the students will leave my classroom with a passion for learning and an understanding of people and places all over the world.

About the Teacher
I am the son of my wonderful mother and also a younger sister and older brother. My older brother Theo, his wife, and daughters all live in Santa Monica. I miss them so. My sister lives in a house with her cat up in the Lincoln Park by Chicago. I tell you this because it's important to know that I take with me my family everywhere I go.

I am married to my lovely wife Katie and back in December of 2010, we had a baby, a cool little dude named Finley.  My world turns, if only just for them, and the love that we have we share again and again.  You can find us at Eli’s enjoying the day, so please if you see us, come on over come over, and stay.  Join us for a chat and soon you will see when the three of us are together, we’re the epitome of happy. 

I left ISU with a bachelor's degree in English, then went back for two more so that I could be in a classroom to teach it. I've been teaching here for almost nine years and living in Morton for some time. I went back to school for a Master’s degree from Olivet University.

Somehow, somewhere, I picked it up along my way, the curiosity of our language and all that it conveys.

Perhaps it was in high school or college. I studied the minds of Hemmingway, Shakespeare, Huxley, Seuss and many more, then began writing my own stories that I hadn't read of before. I collected bits of motivation from here and there, stories told from old ladies with huge purses and old men with no hair, rhymes from Silverstein and Sarah Cynthia Sylva Stout, and stories with characters that during the day I would dream about. Nonetheless, I find myself fascinated with the human experience and the language that we use to convey it and, I admit, I like to have fun with it a bit. 

It's from the beginning of my life, the middle, and the rest of every last part that I decided to become a teacher of language arts.

 

Mission for the Class
I believe that the classroom should be a comfortable environment free of any prejudices, hatred, and stresses that would otherwise infringe on the educational process. Upon crossing the threshold of my classroom all preconceived notions, expectations, and fears should be relinquished. I believe that class should function as a team effort competing in a realm of intellect and should bring about not only intellectual solidarity but also emotional freedom and social awareness. From a collection of minds and thoughts, the mission is to function as one great mind; as we learn from each other we find the path to truth and expression.
