Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!

This is my 12th year at Meridian, and I have three children in the district: Clayton (MHS graduate), Sydney (17), and Sable (5). My husband (Adam) and I have been married for 22 years, and our family enjoys spending lots of time together. We travel and watch the various football teams we cheer for on T.V. , or if we’re lucky, at Arrowhead Stadium. I love Meridian and have tons of school spirit. F.Y.I, I tend to believe that everyone else should have this same level of spirit.

I can’t wait to see each of you grow as a writer, analyzer of literature, and speaker. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you reach your goals.

I graduated from Richland Community College (A.A.) and from the University of Illinois at Springfield (B.A. English, Secondary Teaching Certification, M.A. Teacher Leadership), and I’m currently a student at Kent State University studying Journalism for High School Educators. I also serve on the IHSA Journalism Advisory Committee. 

I love the groups that I’m involved with at Meridian: the class of 2019, yearbook, drama, our school newspaper, and our District 15 news show. Please let me know if you’d like more information regarding any of these groups. I need a variety of talents and can certainly find a place for you!
