About the Teacher

While a student at Bradley University, I was involved in multiple levels of education ranging from preschool and 2nd grade all the way to 6th grade! After earning my Bachelor's in 2002, I moved to the Chicago area and taught 7th grade Math for 3 years; I also coached soccer and volleyball at the middle school. After returning to my hometown of Peoria, I completed my Master's Degree in Educational Technology through Lesley University. In addition to teaching standard math and accelerated math at MJHS, I have also had the privilege of coaching Cross Country, and Track.

 

Mission for the Class

My ultimate goal in the classroom is to reinforce the seventh grade curriculum to increase student understanding and ability in the area of mathematics. We explore a variety of concepts including the number system, data analysis, proportional relationships, and geometry. Emphasis is placed on improving organization and management skills, cooperating with peers, and utilizing available resources. I hope to provide a positive, supportive, and comfortable environment so that all students have the opportunity to be successful.

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. I started the 2012 at Morton junior high and have been here ever since. In 2014, I became the 7th grade baseball coach. In 2016, I created the tabletop time club with Ms. Jester as an after school activity. In 2015, my wife and I welcomed our first son, Blake. In 2017, we had our second son, Kyle.

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! We are so excited to have you on the Green Team this year! I grew up in Tremont and received my Bachelor’s degree from Illinois Wesleyan University in 2005. After teaching for 4 years in Dwight, IL I welcomed the opportunity to come closer to home and teach at MJHS. One of the things I love about teaching geography is the opportunity to look at cultures and people all over the world. I have had the opportunity to travel to a few places like Australia, Romania, and South Africa and I love seeing how people in other parts of the world live. I’m excited to bring that experience to our classroom at MJHS. When I’m not teaching I enjoy being outside, exercising, and spending time with my family. My husband Justin and I were married in 2012 and now have two beautiful girls, Elsie and Evelyn. We recently moved to Morton and love being a part of this great community! I look forward to getting to know the new green team students this year!

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.
