I earned my Bachelor's Degree at Carthage College in Exercise Sports Science.
I am certified to teach Physical Education at the Pk-12 grade levels.
I choose this occupation because I love teaching children that fitness can be a life long journey. Although exercise can be challenging at times, it makes us feel better when we do it.
I have two children: a son, Jack in 7th grade and a daughter, Payton who is a Freshman in highschool. My husband is also a Physical Education teacher. We are a very active family and love to play sport games together.
Our Mission Statement
Together we will teach children to see the world through the eyes of Christ and to model the lives of the Saints in a rigorous academic environment.

Using the FITT principle students are to write a goal to each of the fitness tests so that they can think about on how to improve their score throughout the year.
F. frequency- how often you do something
I. intensity- how hard you do something
T. time-how long you do something
T. type- what kind of exercise you choose to do
Example of P.A.C.E.R goal could be:
In order to improve on my PACER score I will run (what kind) around my block four times (how long) three times a week (how often) in under 5 minutes (how hard).
I have included how often, how hard, how long and what type of exercise I can do to work towards my goal for the PACER.
Rubric: Using all four in a complete sentence is 5 points. Using only 3 in a complete sentence is 4 points. Using only 2 in a complete sentence is 3 points. Using only 1 in a complete sentence is 2 points. Not a complete sentence will be one lost.
If for some reason a student cannot participate in class because of an illness or injury, a doctors note is needed. An alternate assignment will be given for the period of the time needed to be out.
