About the Teacher
I graduated in 1997 from Illinois State University with a Bachelors of Science in Health Education and a minor in History Education. This will be my 17th year of teaching. Morton Junior High is where I did my student teaching back in 1997. I then spent 4 years teaching at Pontiac Junior High School, and three years teaching/subbing for Unit 5 in Normal. I am now in my 11th year here at Morton. I love the profession of teaching because I get to spend my day surrounded by children. I especially love teaching health because there are so many important and interesting things to talk about!
Mission for the Class
My mission for health class is to help you save a life, whether it be your own or someone else's. We learn CPR/First Aid, safety issues of all kinds, violence prevention, alcohol/drug information, and abstinence education. All of these topics can help you save yourself or someone else some day. Health is one of the most important classes you will ever have! I feel so fortunate to be the one to teach it to you.
