Years at Fremd: 25th year at Fremd??? Close enough
Before Fremd I spent several years traveling between Palatine and Fremd, originally hired at Palatine in 1988.
I spent 2 years teaching in a small farming town, Milford, IL. where I taught art at the High School and Grade School, coaching boys JV basketball .
Milford was just northeast of U of I, where I graduated with an art education degree.
Hobbies: I enjoy my 1966 lemans convertible, you can find me driving it throughout the summer. I also like deconstructing and reconstructing things around our home. Spending time with my daughter brings me the greatest joy of all.
Tips for Parents: Children are under a lot of stress at this time of their lives. Understanding them becomes a difficult process when so many things in their lives become a point of concern for them. I feel students are looking for guidance and that is where a parent becomes so important. Not so much for telling them what to do but listening and sharing their stories of struggle with them. I think if your children hear these stories, they can come to their own conclusions and are able to problem solve on their own. Too often we are quick to tell them what to do instead of guiding them to the correct answer. Learning to problem solve then becomes a life lesson and a very important one.
