This is my fourth year of teaching at Ogden International, and eleventh year of teaching. I grew up in the Chicago area and earned degrees from both Loyola University and DePaul University. As a life-long learner, I have always had a deep appreciation for reading, writing and the arts - especially photography. I also enjoy doing crafts and spending time with my rescue dog from Mexico. These days I also find myself spending lots of time outdoors, tending to a giant tomato garden and trying my hand at constructing new things.
