As a retired principal, teacher and coach from Illinois, I am happy to be a full time teacher at Challenger. My role at Challenger is to work with BSI students, parents and the awesome staff.

I grew up in a small community in east central Illinois and graduated from Eastern Illinois University.   My interests are traveling, watching athletic events and playing golf. 

My motto for students has always been, "NOT ALL STUDENTS CAN LEARN THE SAME WAY EVERY DAY".
