Computer Teacher / Religion Teacher Grade 7 / Technology Coach
Ursuline Center

I am greatly honored and excited to be teaching technology here at Ascension School.  I am very proud 

that my children are attending Ascension School just as I did.  After attending Ascension, I graduated 

from Fenwick High School and completed my Bachelor of Arts from University of Illinois, Champaign-

Urbana, majoring in Political Science with a focus in Economics.  Prior to entering teaching, I had over 25 

years of experience in business and finance.  My last position was as a Vice President of Operations for a 

futures brokerage firm in Chicago.   I have always wanted to teach and I later attended and graduated 

from Dominican University’s Masters of Art of Teaching program and where I continue to supplement 

my educational background.  My teaching philosophy is to present new material with a practical hands-on

approach to learning and present it through differentiated instruction.  I believe our students have a 

tremendous capacity to learn and for us, as teachers and parents, to provide this knowledge for them.
