I am in my 25th year of teaching science here at River Trails Middle School. I grew up in
a small town in Central Illinois. I received my undergraduate degree in Agronomy from the University of Illinois. After working in agricultural research and consulting, I received my teaching certification from Elmhurst College. Throughout my career, I have taken classes, attended seminars and workshops  in order to grow professionally. This includes receiving a Masters degree in Science Education and post graduate work at National Louis University. I'm looking forward to another rewarding year teaching at Trails!
