Welcome to my webpage! I look forward to working with you this year. My first teaching job was at a middle school in Aurora, Illinois, in 1995. In 1996, I moved to St. Louis and started teaching French at Wydown Middle School. After 12 years of being "Madame," I switched to social studies and Team 7/8. While I no longer teach French, my students continue to call me Madame. I am passionate about my family, pets, teaching, and gardening. I love to run, swim, and bike and hope to someday soon complete a triathalon.
