I have always loved music: listening, singing, playing multiple instruments, and sharing my experiences with others.  I was enthusiastically involved in school and community bands, orchestras, and theaters as a student, and currently play with the Lisle Community Band every summer.  My Bachelor of Music degree was obtained at the University of Iowa, and I earned my masters degree in differentiated instruction at the University of St. Francis in Joliet.  I have been teaching since 1990, and have had the good fortune to spend all but two of those years right here in District 113A.
