Why Whitewater?
I look forward to teaching at Whitewater High School in a community that works together to give students the best education possible.  I am excited to work in the climate provided in a school the size of Whitewater.  I will be able to work more closely with students, parents, and colleagues.  In addition with working with students I am glad students have many extra-curricular activities offered to students, especially FBLA.


This will be my first year teaching business at Whitewater High School.  My Bachelor's Degree is in Business Education earned at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.  

This semester I am teaching Accounting, Advanced Accounting, Future Connections, and Business Law.  I will also be the coordinator for students who want to take the opportunity to do work study.  This opportunity allows students to gain experience in the work force by releasing them from school earlier than other students.  In addition to teaching, I serve as the advisor for the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or email.
