    About Me:  I grew up on the south side of Chicago, Illinois. I met my husband at Eastern Illinois who was from O'Fallon area.  He is the reason I relocated to Southern Illinois. We have been married 11 years and have our son, Colby. We also have 1 husky, 1 English bulldog, and a crazy lab/retriever mix.  I have been teaching middle and high school for 12 years.  I have taught Physical Education, Health, and Driver's Ed.  During those 12 years, I have coach girls basketball, volleyball, cross country, track, and softball.  This is my second year in the Columbia School District.
