About

I am a CPS security officer with an IL type 9 teaching certificate and an M.Ed. in Teaching & Learning with an emphasis on teaching English in secondary schools. I believe in a strong public school system reformed by educators. I attended The Lane School and Hinsdale Middle School in DuPage's Elementary District 181, and graduated in 2000 from Hinsdale Central High School (District 86). I will not be satisfied until public schools in Chicago are competitive with those that I was fortunate enough to attend as a child due only to accident of birth.
