    Hello students and parents.  I am excited to be teaching Spanish this year.  I will also teach Junior and Senior English, having completed a Bachelor's from Saint Xavier University in Chicago with an English major and Spanish minor.  It will be nice to have my own classes, as I took over Mr. Hill's Freshmen classes last year in October.  I have been teaching for over twelve years, but involved in education for about 20 years.  I spent nine years teaching in California after completing my Master's of Education at University of Illinois in Champaign - Urbana.  My first published novel, Oath of God, was released in 2011, the same year I moved back to the Chicago area to complete a second Master's from Loyola in Pastoral Counseling.  I taught in Illinois for two years and decided to take a year off to plan my wedding and complete my short stories book, however, fate had another plan for me.  I had the opportunity to come to Cedar Lake last year and decided to join the Wildcat family.  I have been enjoying getting to know the students and am looking forward to this school year.
