WELCOME to 8th grade Language Arts!
My goal, which I shared with the students on the first day of school, is to prepare them for high school, college and a career. I also hope to foster a lifelong love of reading.
This is my 29th year as a teacher and my 14th year at Bradley Central. I'm very fortunate to be teaching my favorite grade level and my favorite subject at this wonderful school!
In my free time, I love to read, grow flowers, travel anywhere and everywhere, and spend time with my friends and family. The photo on this page is my husband, Patrick, sitting next to me with our three children, Andrew, Meghan, and Matthew.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you might have. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 815-939-3564, ext. 472.
I'm looking forward to a happy, busy and productive school year!
