Subjects Taught


I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Ball State University with a Major in Business Education and a Minor in Library Media Services, and my Masters in Education from Purdue University.


After graduating from Ball State I worked at Washington Twp. School, in Valparaiso, for three years. While at Washington I was the Library Media Educator, taught General Business, a Children’s Literature class, sponsored a class, as well as coached badminton, (and yes, badminton was an extracurricular sport). I have been teaching at Wheeler High School since 1982, serving as Library Media Educator and Business/Computer teacher as well as sponsoring classes.  It's hard to believe this is my 33rd year here, and when you consider I went to school in Union Twp. and graduated from Wheeler, it's as if I never left. I guess you could say Wheeler has been my home for most of my life, and I have had the opportunity to get to know many wonderful young men and women.


All you need is love Books!  

Hey there and welcome! Glad you are visiting my WHS web page. My mission is to assist students and support teachers in the educational process. Students may visit the Library Media Center (LMC) before school, during the day, and after school to work on homework, research using the online library catalog, internet resources, or just relax and read. I always enjoy discussing what books and authors students read and helping any way I can. Recommendations are always welcome as well.

I have two daughters; one is an Elementary Teacher, and the other is a Structural Engineer in Chicago. When not at school I enjoy spending time with my family and reading.
