Welcome to

Physical Education


I have been teaching in School District 162 for 16 years. I have taught all grade levels, and elementary PE is my favorite. You might also see me outside holding the stop sign, feel free to wave or say hello :)

When I am not at school, you can find me at a few places.  After school, you can find me working out in my exercise room using the Peloton platform.  In the evening, I take Coco, my English Bulldog, for long walks.  I also enjoy swimming, as I swam in college while at Western Illinois University.

It is my goal to get your students active by introducing them to various sports, games, and activities throughout the school year in hopes of him or her developing a passion for leading an active lifestyle.
