A little bit about me....
This year will be my 14th year at Westfield, 12th teaching in my own classroom. I started out as a paraprofessional for two years and have taught in both seventh and eighth grade since. My first year I taught only Social Studies in eighth grade, but now I teach Social Studies in seventh grade. I earned a bachelor's degree in history from Northern Illinois University in 2004 and a graduate's degree as a reading specialist in 2014 from Olivet Nazarene University. I am involved in the school community in several ways that include: morning supervision, lunch supervision, student council representative, track coach, and assistant team leader for 7th grade.
On a personal note, there is nothing better than spending time with my family. I am blessed with a wonderful wife and two sons. We love to travel, take our little ones on daytrips, spend time with extended family, and most importantly, just be together. I also like to spend time going for long runs or playing basketball, cheer on the Bears, Bulls, WSox, Hawks, and read anything I can get my hands on.
I am truly lucky to be surrounded by a loving family and to have the opportunity to work in the Bloomingdale community. I look forward to each in every day at home and at Westfield.
