This is my first opportunity to work in a Catholic school and I am very excited for the opportunity. I always knew I wanted to be an educator.  When I was growing up, I was a few years older than my neighbors and I always found myself teaching them how to play sports and running drills with them. Seeing people improve their abilities and having fun while doing it was something I enjoyed then and continue to enjoy to this day.

In my free time I enjoy both playing and watching sports. I am a Bears, Bulls and White Sox Fan. I also love to spend time with my family and friends.
