I live in Oak Park, Illinois, with my husband, daughter and a grumpy dog.

I am a certified English, ESL, and Spanish teacher with 28 years experience in high schools working with diverse students. I currently teach English as a second language and health in Spanish and English. I am a certified Seeing My Time® course coach.

I recently wrote a course on Executive Functions for Illinois Public School Administrators that was approved by the Illinois Board of Education. I am currently teaching the course in DuPage County.
