About

I began my teaching career at an inner-city high school on the west side of Chicago. From there, I accepted a position at a high school located at the Cook County Jail in the super-maximum security division. I was promoted to English Department Chairperson and created curriculum for the English Department. After completing my Master's Degree in Leadership, I accepted the position of Dean of Students at Evanston Township High School. Following that, I completed the Teaching Exceptional Children program at the University of Notre Dame.
