Welcome to 2019-2020 School Year!

I am incredibly pleased and proud to be serving as the District's MTSS Director.  Prior to beginning this position I served as an Principal for 5 years, Assistant Principal at Percy Julian Middle School for two years. I also spent two years as one of District 97's Teacher Leaders for Mentoring and Instruction, and was a Kindergarten Teacher and Title I Reading teacher in the district for seven years.  My husband, son and I currently live in Oak Park, which is where I was born and raised. 

Having attended District 97 schools as a child, I know firsthand about the district's long-standing tradition of excellence. In my role as the Director of MTSS, I will have the privilege of working closely and collaboratively with talented educators, principals and dedicated parents/guardians who strive each and every day to help our students learn, grow and achieve. I will also have the opportunity to give back to a community that has had a profound impact on me both personally and professionally.

I invite you to please contact me via phone (708-524-3080) or email if you have any comments, questions or feedback. In the meantime, I welcome you to another exciting year here in district 97!
