Welcome to Coal City High School!  I am so excited to start the school year and meet all of our students and staff.  We have many great things planned for this school year and I look forward to a fabulous school year.  
I am a 1996 Coal City High School graduate and proud to be back at my high school to serve my community.  Prior to coming to Coal City, I taught for 12 years at Minooka District #201 primarily as an 8th grade mathematics teacher.  I was hired as the Assistant Principal at Coal City High School in 2015 and spent 3 years in that position.  I then was hired as the Principal at Coal City Elementary School, where I spent 3 years.  This year will be my 19th year in education and I am extremely excited to spend it as the Co-Principal of Coal City High School.  It is great to be back home at CCHS with our amazing staff!
I received my Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from the University of St. Francis.  From there, I received a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Lewis University and a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Saint Xavier University.  I am currently in my last year of doctoral coursework at Illinois State University, hoping to finish my dissertation within the next two years.
I currently live in Goose Lake with my husband of 21 years and our 4 children.  We love our community and cannot imagine living anywhere else.
This year is going to be a year filled with more changes, challenges, and achievements!  I look forward to meeting our students and celebrating a year full of successes with them!  If I can be of any assistance at anytime, please do not hesitate to contact me.
