  • What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me

    My personal philosophy of education mirrors the mission statement of Lakes Community High School District 117 which says; Ignite passion and discovery of every student. My goal as a Family and Consumer Science teacher is to motivate, encourage, and challenge students to work towards their potential. My hope is to provide an environment what promotes a love for learning through engaging, hand-on lessons and activities that are interesting, challenging and fun to learn.

  • A Teachable Moment

    Family and Consumer Science education is a perfect fit for me, as I enjoy fashion and sewing, interior design and the hospitality industry. Through numerous experiences as a teenager and young adult, I discovered a love for sewing and became very passionate about clothing construction. Additionally, my prior experiences in the food industry also lead me to teaching young students about the culinary field and encouraging them to have a love for cooking as I do.
