• Hello to all visiting my teacher webpage! I am originally from the small town of Altamont just west of Effingham, IL, but I moved to Decatur from Edwardsville, IL. After I graduated from Eastern Illinois University in 2014, I substitute taught in both Altamont and Edwardsville over the past few years to keep my teaching skills fresh, but my main instructional long term experience has been coaching volleyball at the junior high and high school levels. I will be continuing to coach volleyball now as the head coach of the program which I am very much looking forward to. On another note, I do have one eight year old son named Joe who will be my little sidekick almost everywhere I go. I chose teaching as my profession because of the passion I have to help children of all ages develop into successful members of society and I am ready to bring that passion to MacArthur this year! Go Generals!!
