On July 1st, I joined the SCW as the new Assistant Superintendent. After earning my bachelor’s degree from Northern Illinois University in 1988, I started my career in education as an English teacher at the Middle and High school level. Besides teaching, coaching, and raising a family, I continued to advance my education earning my Master’s in Educational Administration in 2000 from Indiana University and my Educational Specialist in Educational Leadership from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2013. I hold a superintendent’s license and have served as an Assistant Principal at both the Middle and High school level and most recently as the Director of Secondary Education for Merrillville. I am excited about the opportunity to work in Whiting and become an Oiler!
