The Flossmoor Hills Pirates!!!

Congratulations to our FXC Boys Running Club for being honored at the School Board Meeting!

Principal's Place

  I am very excited to serve the students and families as the principal of Flossmoor Hills! I look forward to all that we will accomplish during the 2018-2019 school year! Go Eagles! 

This is my eleventh year in School District 161. I began my career in the district by teaching third and fourth grades at Serena Hills. Following that I spent three years as an Instructional Coach and two years as the Assistant Principal at Flossmoor Hills Elementary School. 

I went to Eastern Illinois University for my bachelors in education and received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from National Louis University and my Masters in Educational Administration from Concordia University. I am currently working on my Doctorate of Education from Concordia University.

My husband teaches Industrial Technology at Parker Jr. High. Together we enjoy traveling, the outdoors, and spending time with family, friends, and our wonderful dog. We both really love SD161 and are so thankful our careers brought us to such a wonderful community!
