Hello, Chicago Heights 170 family. What an exciting year we have ahead of us with the opening of the middle school! I have been an educator in Chicago Heights for over 20 years. I began my career as a preschool teacher at the Chicago Heights Park District, taught as a second and fourth grade teacher at Lincoln and Garfield, serviced multiple schools as an ESL teacher and now serve the district as the Director of English Language Learners. Each experience has increased my passion for the students and families in the Chicago Heights community. My education includes a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary education, a Master’s degree in Reading, and a Master’s in Principal Leadership. I look forward to a year full of exciting new beginnings, experiences and relationships. Please feel free to contact me @
