I was a third and fourth grade classroom teacher for 14 years. I am now extending my circle of influence as a school librarian. I also babysit, tutor, and do research for an author. My brother, his wife, and their boys live in Antioch, my mom lives in Elburn, and my dad in Joliet. I have two orange and white tabby cats named Penny and Nemo. I'm 40 years old and single. I live in a great neighborhood - Silverstone Lake, in Carpentersville. I recently received my master's degree in Library and Information Science from Dominican University in Oak Park, Illinois. I went to U of I in Champaign/Urbana for undergrad and Downers Grove South for HS.
