I grew up in Alaska and love returning to visit, but I am a city gal! My favorite memories from living there are catching a 110 pound halibut and clam digging with my bare hands! I attended Marquette University and still enjoy going to basketball games there. I live in the Albany Park neighborhood and love the diversity of people and restaurants. My hobbies include going to the gym, doing puzzles, and eating out way too much. I love teaching middle school because I am passionate about math and enjoy imparting my knowledge of the subject, as well as including random references to 1990’s pop culture.
