My Class8th Grade - Red Team

The middle school philosophy encourages students to view the diverse range of subject areas, such as math, science, language arts, fine arts, and social studies, as interrelated and applicable in their everyday lives. The Red Team teachers embrace this philosophy by providing students with many opportunities to see the connections between the different content areas and apply concepts from these classes in their lives outside of school.   

The Red Team teachers look forward to working with the students of the class of 2019. If you have any questions, feel free to send us an email or leave a message on our school phones. You can connect to the individual teachers’ homepages by clicking on the links provided below.

About the Teacher

This is my 10th year teaching English Language Arts at MJHS.  I graduated from Bradley University in 2004 with a degree in Elementary Education and have received my Masters’ Degree in Educational Technology.  While not in the classroom, you may find me coaching and sponsoring multiple extra-curricular activities.  I am entering my 9th year coaching softball at MJHS. I also coach the Freshman MHS Lady Potters.  In addition, I am co-sponsor of the MJHS student council.  

While not at school, I love working on my house, playing and watching sports on TV, and taking runs around the community.  I look forward to getting to know more students, parents, and community members throughout the year.



Mission for the Class
The mission of my class is to widen a student's outlook on learning and literature through providing a wide range of stories and novels to share. Also, I strive to provide a positive and welcoming environment to all students. Learning in a positive atmosphere is not only a path to success, but also a way to a better educational outlook.

About the Teacher

After teaching in East Peoria, Illinois for 3 years, I came to MJHS in 2010.  I have lived in Morton my entire life and had the privilege of going to school in this wonderful district.  After graduating from Morton High School, I went to Illinois Central College and then on to Illinois State University to complete my math degree.  I am very excited to be “home” and teach at MJHS and I look forward to a great year with students, parents, faculty, and administration.

 

Mission for the Class
My mission for the classroom is to create a learning environment where all students can be successful. I will challenge every student to reach their potential by using various instructional methods and involving the students in the learning process.

About the Teacher:   

I spent the early part of my childhood in Morton before my family moved to Geneseo where I graduated from Geneseo High School in 2009. Following that, I attended the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse where I earned a degree in Broad Field Social Studies Education in 2014. Prior to returning to Morton in 2017, I taught for 3 years in Ellsworth, WI. I am excited to be at MJHS and back in the Morton Community!

 

Mission for the Class

My goal is to create a safe, positive class environment that is conducive to student learning and where all students can be successful. Students will be challenged through a variety of instructional methods and materials in order to enhance critical thinking and analysis skills.

Science

About the Teacher:

I am excited to start teaching science at Morton Junior High School!  I grew up in Sherman, IL, which is a small town near Springfield.  I went to Illinois State University for undergrad, then relocated to the Peoria area when I started teach at Broadmoor Jr. High in Pekin.  While there for the past seven years, I taught 7th and 8th grade science and coached volleyball.  I also earned my master's degree in administration in 2012 from St. Xavier University.  I live in Morton with my wife, Sarah and our new baby, Ellasyn.  We also have a goldendoodle that acts as another child for us.
